Error validating server certificate

I have been attempting to set up the very excellent CPAN module SVN::Notify::Mirror, and things have been going very well. The goal is to use SVN::Notify in a hook script to mirror a portion of our repo on a windows development server. What the module does is to logon to the remote server via ssh and issue an update. So, while the hook lives on the svn server, it is actually the remote server that is updating.
Unfortunately, in testing, when I run the hook script manually it seems to work up until the actual updating needs done, and then I get this:
[root_at_svn hooks]# ./post-commit /svnserver/repos/testing/ 1008
selecting p (for permanent acceptance) doesn't seem to do anything, and I am wondering if that is because the entity actually having a problem with the certificate is the remote server. Oddly, logging onto the remote server, I can pull up the repo in a browser with not certificate complaints whatsoever.
What can I do so that the remote server does not complain about the certificate? I should not that the certs as well as the intermediate cert are correctly configured in the apache server on the linux based svn repository server. Any ideas?
