Hi Alan,

This brings back a hazy memory of problems I was having when I first
setup svn+ssh repository access. I may not remember correctly, but
maybe this will help. Check the key that you just added to the
authorized keys file. Make sure it is all one line, and take out any
extra spaces between commas (if you have things like no-port-
forwarding,no-agent-forwarding, etc.). I know this sounds stupid, but
give it a try. :-)
