Seeing the same issue reported at the last post 

This is reviewboard 1.6.15 on OS X.

To get this far, I did have to: ln -s /usr/local/bin/rbssh /usr/bin/rbssh

When I try to add a repo I get this in the GUI:

A repository was not found at the specified path.

The log shows:

Network connection closed unexpectedly

When trying rbssh from the command line:

$ sudo -s
bash-3.2# sudo -u _www -s
bash-3.2$ export HOME=/Library/Server/Web/Data/Sites/<site>/data
bash-3.2$ export DEBUG_RBSSH=1
bash-3.2$ rbssh svn+ssh://<username>@<server>/path/to/repo

Welcome to <server>.

<server>:~ $ logout

In other words, it appeared to work fine.

Incidentally, I added the rbssh environment vars to my apache config and no 
logs are showing up.

SetEnv RBSSH_LOG_DIR /var/log/reviewboard

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
