Are you using the ssh that comes installed with OSX? If so, I'd
recommend installing openssh from MacPorts. I recall having issues
with the stock version which were resolved by using the more
up-to-date version you can get via MacPorts.

BTW, I haven't been able to check out the new svn repository via
svn+ssh:// because I can't get svn to authenticate with an alternative
username. My username on dev.open-bio.org differs from what it is on
my local machine, so I issue a command such as:

steve at localhost $ svn --username sac checkout

but I get challenged with:
steve at dev.open-bio.org's password:

I also tried putting the --username argument after the subcommand, but
it still wants to use my local username. I can ssh -l sac into the dev
box no problem. Any suggestions?
