TSVN uses its own method of specifying the tunneling software, usually
plink.

You don't say what shell you're running. I use Cygwin's bash shell, and
have svn in the PATH, but I don't use SVN_SSH. I have ssh in my path in
/usr/bin/ssh (which is Cygwin's way of saying f:/cygwin/bin).

I'd guess the problem you're having is that you're specifying the path
in SVN_SSH using backslashes. You need to use forward slashes or double
the backslashes. E.g. for me in a Windows command shell, this works:

set SVN_SSH=f:/cygwin/bin/ssh.exe
