That means its having trouble running ssh to open the tunnel. From the
prompt, it looks as though you're running in a Windows command shell.
Does the command "ssh" work by itself? If not, you're supposed to be
able to set up a different command using the SVN_SSH environment
variable, but I've seen reports that people have had trouble getting
that to work. There's probably some problem with escapes of backslashes
or something causing trouble.

I use a bash shell in Cygwin (though I don't use the Cygwin build of
svn), and all this works very smoothly. You might want to try that
since it sounds as though you'd be comfortable in a Unix-alike environment.
