The server is behind a firewall that allows (almost) only ssh through
it. So if I'm getting any data at all from the server, it's because I've
successfully authenticated to the ssh server. My understanding is that
for svn+ssh://, subversion uses ssh to log into the remote server, and
then executes svnserve as a local process that doesn't talk to the
network except through the ssh connection. Is my understanding
incorrect?

I should have mentioned that it works fine from other computers.

Good idea, I will try this.
