Ryan,

I thought the same thing when I first ran into this problem, as it
seemed to be a path issue. The user account, "jkoerber", on the
server that I am using in the connect has the correct $PATH for
Subversion: /usr/local/bin.

I checked the value of the $PATH env variable by connecting directly
via SSH to the server from my client and it does indeed have the
correct path to the /usr/local/bin directory where svnserve lives.
Is it somehow not picking up the $PATH at the time I issue the svn
+ssh connection protocol? It "seems" to be set up correctly?
