[OS X TeX] svnX and Leopard [OT]

Would it be possible for you to try opening a (bash) Terminal and running:
    eval `ssh-agent -s`
    open -a svnX
and then try connecting? This will use the built-in ssh-agent in Mac OS X, and possibly it will pass along the proper credentials.

I noticed that SSH Agent weblog hasn't been updated since 2006, if that is what you are using.
Maybe the build in ssh-agent will work better?
My thoughts are that the ssh credentials aren't being passed from your client to the server.
It would be helpful if svnX allowed you to specify ssh to run with the -vvv option, for diagnosis of problems with your connection.

As always, good luck.
