What shell is attached to the account you're connecting to? If it's a
regular user account, won't .bashrc or some other rc be executed on

In my case, the shell is bash, and I have a fairly simple .bashrc that
puts svnserve onto the path (because it's a local install on my own
account, I'm not an admin on the server machine).
