Vista-specific SSH tunnel problem

I can't get the svn 1.5.2 client on a Windows Vista box to work with an
ssh tunnel to a server. Every time I try to access the server, svn gives
an error message, "svn: Connection closed unexpectedly"

I have the following entry in the [tunnels] section of the config file

ssh = $SVN_SSH plink -ssh -2 -v -A

and I can connect successfully to the server with the command line

plink -ssh -2 -v -A <username>@<hostname> svnserve -t

I can also connect successfully to the server from an identically
configured svn 1.5.2 client on an XP box, so the issue seems to be
completely about Vista.

Specific example: the command, "svn info
svn+ssh://<username>@<hostname>/<path>" succeeds on XP but fails with a
"svn: Connection closed unexpectedly" error message under Vista.

Any help would be welcome.
