win32 svn+ssh fails when DISPLAY is set

I noticed that svn+ssh fails when using rxvt under cygwin.
The reason turned out to be because DISPLAY is set.
if I unsetenv DISPLAY, then it works...

Win32 svn ver 0.26.0
cygwin built rxvt 2.7.10 running cyg's tcsh 6.12.00

starting out rxvt defines DISPLAY=:0
under tcsh, if I unsetenv DISPLAY, then the svn command works.

svn command:
  svn co svn+ssh://www.myserver.com/home/svn/trunk

The only thing I can guess is that this has to do with Xforwarding in my
SSH setup, since I have the X display set.... Anyone know what's going on

This may be a good faq item, It took me a while to track this down since
the output didn't indicate anything to do with DISPLAY or X or even SSH...
