I dealt with this issue with regards to 'Unison' some time ago. I'm
going to guess, haven't verified it, that the problem is the same with
svn. Namely that it essentially assumes it is working with OpenSSH and
provides options at the command line that are appropriate for OpenSSH
but not plink. If so, the problem can be solved by making a "wrapper"
script ("plink.cmd") around plink.exe and trapping the options sent by
svn (%1%, %2%, etc.) and morphing them into what plink needs on the
command line. Wish I had time to test this to be sure.

That tar pit of requiring forward slashes in SVN_SSH was the worst.

But now that I have it working, I think subversion is the cat's meow.
