This would most likely be your ssh client failing. SSH can forward X
messages; perhaps your client is trying to do so (but if course, that
doesn't work, since you ahve no server). Try creating a tunnel in
your Subversion config file that specifies "-x" (little x), which for
most SSH clients means "don't do the X thing." Something like this:

[tunnels]
sshnox = ssh -x

then do

svn whatever svn+sshnox://host/blah/blah
