Since the Windows binaries for the Subversion CL client are not
available yet, please download the svn.exe from here:
then copy it into the TSVN installation folder (c:\program
files\tortoisesvn\bin), open a command prompt, go to that directory,
then try accessing your repository with the CL client, e.g.
svn ls svn+ssh://yourserver/repos/trunk

You may have to edit the Subversion config file and set up your ssh
client there first.

If this hangs too (which I suspect it does from my quick tests), then
please report the issue on the Subversion mailing list (users at
subversion tigris org).
