How can I receive more information when an error occurs?

I am trying to set up subversion to support a cvs->svn conversion.
To learn more, I have read much of the book, and have begun experimenting
with trivial repositories (files and revisions can be counted on one hand).
I have set up a repository on my Windows XP Pro
system, which I can access locally with svn. I have set up a repository on
the Linux system where the cvs repository resides, which I can access
with svn.
My next experiment is to access the svn repository on the Linux system from
my Windows system via SSH tunneling. SSH tunneling from the Windows system
to the Linux system works for TortoiseCVS using PuTTY/Plink.
I thought I'd just ask for a listing, to start:
C:\ ... \project>svn list -R -v svn+ssh://cvs.eclypse.org/home/svn/repos
svn: The system cannot find the file specified.
Obviously it failed. My major concern at this point is not why it is
(I'll probably figure that out eventually) but how to get more information
when failures occur. "-v" didn't help, as can be seen above. Is there
any capability similar to the cvs "-t" option? "cvs -t" spews lots of
information about the various steps, which has been very
helpful to me when trying to track down cvs trouble. I'm particularly
concerned with respect to my requirement to support remote users -- when
something doesn't work for them, I'd like a way to extract some kind
of hint about where to look for the problem.
(The error message above is essentially "Operation failed, try again".
For example, I tried replacing the valid dns name with one which is
bogus -- same error message.)
