Using svn+ssh hangs on win32

I have tried searching the archives for a solution to this problem, but I
could not come up with any. Here follows a description of my problem.

I have SVN 1.2.0 installed (using the binary installation distro) on my
Win32 Windows XP SP1 computer. I also have plink and openssh installed, and
they are both globally available on the command line.

I want to use SVN over svn+ssh to access source code from a BerliOS project.
I issue the following command to supposedly check out the latest changes:

    C:\test> svn checkout

This will hang seemingly for all eternity. If I ctrl+c, the whole thing
exists with "svn: Connection closed unexpectedly". This happens for all svn
commands I have tried (checkout, list, update, etc), and for all ssh clients
I have tried (OpenSSH and Plink).

Note that the above approach works perfectly on FreeBSD.

Now, I have tried debugging this a little. After using this approach ->

was able to determine that the SSH client had set up the connection and that
the server possibly was awaiting a password. However typing the password at
the hanging command line did not provoke any activity.

As it seems, there is a problem with the svn+ssh combo to interact with the

Any suggestions on how to fix this will be highly appreciated. Surely a
solution will benefit alot of existing and future users. Thanks.

Kind regards,
