SSH Authorization problem, and list archives

From: Eric <spamsink_at_scoot.netis.com>

Couple of questions... First of all, is there a list archive of this
mailing list that I can search for answers to questions? I looked at the
messages I received when I first joined this list, and read through the
FAQ, and couldn't find anything (was hoping I could find an answer to the
MAIN question of this note, without having to ask it again.)

Main question is...

Trying to access my Subversion repository with:

svn checkout svn+ssh://my.svnserver.com/path/to/repos

SSH comes back and asks for my password:

eric@my.svnserver.com's password:

I give it the (correct) password, then it waits for a very long time
(around 20 seconds), then it says:

Warning: no xauth data: using fake authentication data for X11 forwarding

Then it asks for my password again.

First of all, I didn't ask it for X11 forwarding (i.e. didn't give it the
-Y switch to ssh).

Other times I have ssh-tunnelled into this machine and enabled X11
forwarding (during logins and operations that don't have anything to do
with Subversion), e.g.:

ssh -Y -l eric my.svnserver.com

It asks me for my password and then gives me the same Warning: message
above ... but then it proceeds to log me in and allow X11 forwarding just
as I asked it to do.

What is causing it to think I"m asking for X11 forwarding this time, and
how can I get it to let me in?
