svn:// tunneled through ssh is NOT what you are trying to use! You are
trying to use svn+ssh://, which should probably really be called
file+ssh://. svn+ssh:// uses direct file access, svn:// does not.

Using svnserve via ssh will redirect ports from a local machine to the
remote machine, over the encrypted link. THIS IS NOT AT ALL THE SAME AS
