When you tunnel the svn connection over ssh, then the authentication is
done by ssh alone. So Subversion never even sees your authentication
data. That's why the user is always SYSTEM (the user ssh is running as).
Check the Subversion mailing list - I remember that someone had a
solution to that problem by using a special tool with ssh.
