Subversion has several places where such settings can be stored. One
is the registry, which is used by the TSVN->Settings->Network->SSH
dialog. Then there's the config file in %APPDATA%\Subversion, then the
config file in %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Subversion.

Check all those places for an SSH settings entry. You might have set
the wrong path in one of those places.

(btw: TSVN does *not* use the SSH client at all - that's all the
Subversion library).
