I recently updated from 1.6.5 to 1.6.10 and since updating, can no longer 
connect to my repositories(that were functioning fine in 1.6.5).
SSH Keys are properly configured from the apache user on my ReviewBoard 
server to the rbsvn user on my repository server. From a command line as 
apache, I can do "svn info svn+ssh://rbsvn@sc/export/svn/repos/SSTS" and 
get a valid response. Within the python shell, I can get the same 
information using pysvn and Client.info2(). When I attempt to reconfigure a 
repository in the admin section, I get the following results:

SVN: Failed to get repository information for 
svn+ssh://rbsvn@sc/export/svn/repos/SSTS: To better debug SSH connection 
problems, remove the -q option from 'ssh' in the [tunnels] section of your 
Subversion configuration file.
Network connection closed unexpectedly

I have multiple repositories that are all responding in the same fashion, 
and am not sure where to go with troubleshooting this further.
