Like Eric said, sounds like you have multiple copies of "svnserve" in
the PATH. We typically configure our ~/.ssh/authorized_keys files with
full paths for the commands, i.e.:

command="/usr/bin/svnserve -t -r
/var/svn",no-agent-forwarding,no-pty,no-port-forwarding,no-X11-forwarding

Which eliminates the chance that a malicious user could put another
(hacked) copy of svnserve in the PATH somewhere above /usr/bin.
