[Python-Dev] Subversion checkout hanging?

I've had to blast my windows machine, as one is apparently required to
do on occasion, and I'm trying to set up subversion again.  I saved my
private key file, and I can use plink -T to connect and I get:

( success ( 1 2 ( ANONYMOUS EXTERNAL ) ( edit-pipeline ) ) )

and that seems correct, and jives with the FAQ at least.  I've also
edited my %APPDATA%/Subversion/config file, and I know it was the
right one, because I screwed it up at first and it didn't work at
all.. :-)

However, now I'm just getting a hang when I execute:

svn checkout svn+ssh://pythondev@svn.python.org/python/trunk

I've only let it go for about 5 minutes so far, so maybe it's thinking
about something, but I suspect it isn't...

Anyone have any idea what I've done wrong?
