Hi Stefan,

Thanks for your reply.

I've downloaded svn.exe as suggested this morning and tried it out.

As expected, it also hangs without any message when running

svn ls svn+ssh://yourserver/repos/trunk

What is interesting, is that if I generate a key on the client using
puttygen and make it available via pageant, after adding the key to the
authorized_keys on the server then svn.exe works without problems.

After generating the key, I also tested TortoiseSVN again and it also
works. So the problem is confined to situations where ssh needs to
prompt for a username/password.

For reference, my server is a Debian GNU/Linux system (4.0) running ssh
server 4.3p2-9 and subversion 1.4.2dfsg1-2.

I'll send a summary mail to the subversion mailing list as you advised.

Thanks again,
