svn+ssh: malformed data error

I'm having trouble getting the ssh tunnel to work correctly. I'm using
subversion 1.0. The server is RedHat 9 and the client is windows xp.

I created repository in my home directory and imported a test source tree.

I successfully checked out files locally on the server via file:// url.

I also successfully checked out files on the windows client using svn:// url
and svnserve -d on the server, so I don't think I have a client/server version

However, I'm getting a "malformed network data" error with snv+ssh:// urls.

I can connect to my account on the server just fine with putty, so it's not a
problem with ssh server.

I have set the ssh variable in the subversion config file to specify the ssh
client along with user and password.

I saw a few posts in the archives about .rc files outputing text during login
causing this problem, but that doesn't seem to be it. I don't see any extra
text when running the following command.

plink -t -l <user> -pw <password> <server> svnserve -t
( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS EXTERNAL ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

That appears to be the correct output as far as I can tell. The only odd thing
I noticed was that I was getting a "not a tty" message unless I specified the -
t option.

I don't know what else do try and I really would like to use svn+ssh. Does
anyone have any ideas what the problem might be?
