After 1.5.0 upgrade, keeps prompting for ssh username

I had been using TortoiseSVN 1.4.8 connecting to a Linux machine with ssh. The
server's hostname is linux01. I have Pageant running with my private key
imported and I have a Putty config called 'linux01' which connects to that host
and logs in as user stuartf. I can start Putty, double-click on the linux01
session and it connects and logs in without needing to type any password or

But on upgrading to 1.5.0 this has stopped woking. Initially I had assumed
Tortoise SVN was the problem, but I see identical behaviour from the command
line client. As a test case I am attempting a fresh checkout
since that doesn't require a working copy (so we can rule
out the working copy being corrupt somehow). The repository URI is


or giving the username explicitly,

    svn+ssh://stuartf <at> linux01/home/svn/vs

These used to work with 1.4.8 but now both prompt for a username. When I enter
a username I am told that the Connection has closed unexpectedly. How can I
make it realize that it should log in as stuartf using the private key I have
loaded in Pageant?

FTR I am using the following version:

svn.exe" --version
svn, version 1.5.0 (r31699)
