"Bad Packet Length" sounds like an SSH protocol error to me;
I would suspect a bug in either the SSH client or SSH server
is the root cause of this. (Given the way the SVN and TSVN
use an external SSH client, it should not be possible for
them to cause this error w/o there being a bug in the SSH
client or server.)
