svn+ssh config ignored

I think I found a bug in TortoiseSVN: My svn+ssh configuration is ignored.

This is the '[tunnels]' section of my config file:
   ssh = c:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe -p 6022
   foo = c:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe -p 6022
svn+ssh does not work: produces a timeout.
svn+foo works as expected.

I just updated to "TortoiseSVN 1.6.0, Build 15855 - 32 Bit" and the
bug is still present.
I have not seen anything recent related to 'ssh' in
issue tracker and the mailling lists, so I did not test the nightly build.

More on the issue:
* The error message is a pop-up: PuTTY Fatal Error - Network error:
Connection timed out
* I did most my testing with right-click -> TortoiseSVN -> Repo-browser
* After the time out, the Repo-browser tries again and refuses to
close. (I'll stop here or I'll  break the "Only report one problem in
each bug report" rule...)
* Renaming TortoisePlink.exe changes the error message to "Can't
create tunnel: Le fichier spécifié est introuvable." (Original message
must be something like: "File not found" or "No such file").
* Setting the environment variable "SVN_SSH" does not help.
* Installing & configuring Putty helps... It allows me to access with
   - It does connect (no time out), displays "Please wait while the
repository browser is initializing...", then "Please wait..." but
displays "Network connection closed unexpectedly" when I try to browse
the repository.
   - Removing the 'ssh = ...' line from the config file makes it work!
So I guess it's not completely ignored...
   - The environment variable "SVN_SSH" is still ignored.

Thanks to the TortoiseSVN team!
I hope that helps,
Matt Labbé.
