Connection closed unexpectedly

I worked through my last problem and now have a new one....

 

I'm using svnserve. I created a repository, went to a remote machine,
and checked it out, changed some files and committed the changes. All
was well. I sent out the tortoiseSVN instructions to a coworker and when
she tried to do a checkout, she got the error message "Connection closed
unexpectedly".

 

So, I tried using her login information on my laptop and was able to do
the checkout.

 

Here is what I'm doing:

- I right click, get the menu and select "SVN checkout"

- URL of repository gets set to:
svn+ssh://joeuser@172.16.102.77/home/svnuser/QA"

- Checkout directory gets set to: QA

- Click OK

 

When 2 of my coworkers try this, they get the ssh key confirmation
popup, they click yes, they enter the password twice and then it dies
with the error listed above.

 

I come to my laptop, follow the same steps and use their login
information and it works fine. I searched on google and it appears that
many others have had a similar problem, but no solutions are ever
posted....although I did find 1 person who had a solution "go back to
CVS"...which I don't want to do.

 

Any ideas?
