It does. You can do the following:

Edit ~/.subversion/config (on the client) and, in the section [tunnels],
add a line

myssh = ssh -v

Then use the URL "svn+myssh://<server-IP>" to connect to your repository.

I wouldn't use -vvv, because even -v is likely to give you an output 
that is too long for SvnX to display. Hopefully it will still show you 
what is going on.
