There is a tarpit in that the SVN_SSH variable must be properly set:

This works:
        set SVN_SSH="c:/cygwin/bin/ssh"

This does NOT work:
        set SVN_SSH="c:\cygwin\bin\ssh"

Note the forward slashes. Same whether using PuTTY or Cygwin.

The error message about "No repository found" is a wild goose chase. It likely
is trying to tell you that it could not make a connection with SSH even tho
you know SSH works outside SVN.
