One thing I never saw in these tutorials I've been reading is how the SVN
client knows what svnserve command to execute after it logs into SSH. For
example, what if I want to specify the root of my repository?

Okay, so I just figured out something odd. When I go to task manager (on
windows) and close the TortoiseSVN repo browser (because it's stuck trying
to initialize the repository list), once the TSVN window goes away I get an
error message from PuTTY, but it's not even running! How odd is that? The
error says:

"PuTTY Fatal Error
Server unexpectedly closed network connection"

I'm wondering if PuTTY is acting as a firewall/bridge or something...
