svnserve/ssh tunnel?

Hi, I am trying out subveresion but I don't want to deal with the pain of
apache, so I am trying to use svnserve. I have a linux server and a win32
client. From the win32 client, I keep an ssh tunnel to the
server for various purposes (mail, etc) and I have added a port for

In the install.txt and the Subversion book, it mentions there's a [tunnels]
section in the servers file where I can specify the value of 'ssh'. So,
anyway, I try to add that:

    ssh = telnet localhost 3690

But actually, no matter what I try to set the value of 'ssh' to, it just
doesn't make a difference, the behavior of the svn client is always
the same. When I try to do this:

    svn co svn+ssh://localhost/home/svn/code

it just hangs until I ctrl-c it. I assume I am doing something subtly
wrong, but what that is is just not evident. Before anyone asks,
the ssh tunnel is definitely working; I can telnet localhost 3690 from
the command line on the win32 machine and see the
LISP-looking svn protocol greet me.

This is with svn 0.26.0, by the way. Any help would be appreciated,
