using email address as username fails

We're in the middle of looking at migrating some or part of the project
from cvs to svn and historically cvs account names were the
contributor's email address.

We're doing the same for svn and from a Linux "client" it works just
fine. TortoiseSVN, on the otherhand, doesn't appear to like the @ as
part of the username - I never even make it to ssh.

We've gotten this to work with putty/pagent but I can't assume everyone
is using putty - I use SecureCRT, for instance. The URL I'm using is:


Tortoise spews back "error * connection closed unexpectedly". I can ssh
in as user "mrz@mozilla.com" so I know ssh authentication is working.
If I create a local account "mrz", I have no problems.

Do I have the syntax incorrect? What's the fix?
