svn: Connection closed unexpectedly (solved)

This is not an error with subversion, but I wanted to report it to the
list in the event that someone may encounter a similar issue. I was
using Windows 2000 with cygwin installed as an svn client to connect to
a subversion repository (running on FreeBSD) and was getting the
following message when trying to use svn+ssh to connect:

C:\eclipse\workspace>svn list
svn+ssh://myusername@my.svn.repository.com/usr/local/svnroot
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

This would happen almost immediately when trying to connect. The problem
turned out to be the ssh banner that was being presented to my ssh
client. After removing the banner from sshd on the subversion
repository, svn+ssh started working without a hitch. Below is a copy of
the ssh banner i was using on the subversion repository server:

I hope that this helps anyone who may be searching one day for that
particular error message.
