i tried different combinations. in cygwin, i have added the
svn-win32-1.1.0-rc1/bin directory to the path and SVN_SSH=ssh
peter@DELL5150 ~
$ svn
Type 'svn help' for usage.

peter@DELL5150 ~
$ export SVN_SSH=/usr/bin/ssh

peter@DELL5150 ~
$ cd /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork/

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ export SVN_SSH=ssh

peter@DELL5150 /cygdrive/e/home/peter/CodeWarriorWork
$ svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

windows "command shell" : added both the svn and cygwin/bin dirs to the path

E:\>svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

E:\>set SVN_SSH
SVN_SSH=ssh

E:\>set PATH
Path=E:\cygwin\bin;e:\svn-win32-1.1.0-rc1\bin
PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

E:\>svn ls svn+ssh://bender/var/lib/svn/repos
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

no, i don't judge subversion for that. i do judge windows, though.

yes, i know. encrypted access is my basic requirement or i could not
use the repository from my home office and i hate wasting two hours for
commuting every day...
