Re: svn+ssh on cygwin/openssh

I appreciate the help, but that's not the problem. There is an
incompatibility( maybe stdin/stdout? ) between svn and ssh whenever svn
invokes ssh on windows/cygwin i.e. it never prompts me for my password
and dies with:

>svn: Connection closed unexpectedly
I tried setting up an alias:

micahssh = @MICAHSSH c:/cygwin/bin/ssh
svn svn+micahssh://micah@localhost/repo/test

with the same failure result. I should note that TortoiseSVN(plink)
works fine with ssh so the problem lies in invoking ssh through svn...
