[Subclipse-users] Plink for each svn+ssh request?

Hi all,

I'm running Eclipse 3.4 and Subclipse 1.4.3 (in Windows) and have recently
started noticing some weird slow-downs -- mainly with synchronization (like,
I always ended up killing it after 5-10 minutes), but also it was taking a
long time (maybe 10-20 seconds) for the popup menu to come up after
right-clicking an SVN project, and various other operations were slower than
they should have been. I had tried SVNKit with both password and private key
authentication and also JavaHL with TortoisePlink, and both had pretty much
the same result. I'm fairly confident that the latter is configured
correctly because command line and Tortoise work with no problem.

While I was using JavaHL, I noticed that Eclipse was kicking off a lot of
TortoisePlinks during a synchronize, sometimes 4-5 at a time. They would
spawn and then die immediately, which didn't seem right, so I decided to try
manually port-forwarding with PuTTY and using svn://localhost instead. And
lo and behold, synch happens nearly immediately now. So I assume that
starting a new plink for each svn status and info was what caused it to be
so slow--has anyone else had this problem? Any idea how to fix it?

Thanks!
Kyle
