Those kind of errors are basically what you get when there's a problem
running the svnserve program on the other end of the ssh connection.
So there are two possibilities, either your coworkers are failing to
start svnserve at all (perhaps it's not in their PATH?), or they are
starting it and it's crashing or something. To test for the first
option, have them try sshing in to the server and running the command
svnserve, just to see if it can be executed.
