I have installed RabbitVCS on Fedora16 64bit. When I try to checkout I get the following error

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

Whereas I can successfully checkout using commandline SVN client provided by the subversion package.

So, how to resolve this issue?

I think this link answers the issue, I have the same problem on my Linux system:

This has been a long standing problem with PySVN (the Python bindings we use under the hood for SVN work).

See: http://pysvn.tigris.org/ds/viewMessage.do?dsForumId=1335&dsMessageId=2621231

Unfortunately, unless someone comes up with a solution, it looks like you'll need to configure SVN+SSH to use keys instead of passphrases.

Sounds like a known issue they haven't resolved yet.
