Nope. A very modern Pentium-M, but not dual-core.

It got me thinking though, so I tried on a different box - a year-old,
slower, Pentium-M running WinXP Media Center, and that one worked fine.
Same version of TortoiseSVN and Putty. Hmmm....

Oh well.

I did manage to re-configure TortoiseSVN to run SSH through a script,
and then added some debugging calls to the script to log things. No
particular help. I tried this with both the TortoisePlink (0.57) and the
Putty plink (0.58).

I also added heaps of debugging on the server side, but not much help
there either.

But then I did manage to get a workaround....

The last thing I tried was to set up a permanent SSH tunnel from port
3690 on the Windows box through to port 3690 on the SVN server, and
access the repository through svn://localhost/path/to/repos. This worked
as far performing a checkout.

I still have to set up access rights correctly on the SVN server so that
the direct svnserve process lets me perform a commit, but it's
definitely an improvement so far...

Cheers,
