OS X 10.4 svn+ssh:// weirdness

I'm having a really strange problem with 1.2 RC 3 on OS X 10.4. I have two very large autogenerated text files (each about 175 MB) that serve as test vectors. Unfortunately, instead of committing them as seperate files, I committed them as different revisions of the same file. OK, no problem, in order to get the one that I want, I just need to use svn cat -r and remember not commit that file ever again.

Out of idle curiosity, I decided to try to use svn merge instead of svn cat; OS X (which is acting as the server to a linux box) will pop up 2 instances of sshd (well, 4, but that's only because of process separation). It looks like svn opens up the connection to the mac, the mac times out, and then somehow, svn opens a second connection. The problem is that sometimes that connection also times out, and I end up with even more connections. What's more, when I try to see what processes are doing what, svnserve is mostly idle (less than 3% CPU usage, and rapidly dribbling off; idling?)

Now the reason I'm mentioning this all here, and not filing a bug with Apple is because I think that they are still using the same version of SSH (OpenSSH_3.8.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.7b 10 Apr 2003) as they did on 10.3.9. And when I had that and was using svn 1.1.4, I could do this without the extra sshd instances coming up.

If anyone has any ideas on how I can go about testing/isolating the cause of this so I can file a bug report, I'm all ears.

Thanks,
Cem Karan
