Connection error

..When trying a checkout after doing kinit, I see this error


 [tdh@camp5 privilege]$ svn checkout
 svn+ssh://p-privilege@cdcvs.fnal.gov/cvs/projects/privilege/trunk
 sh: -c: line 0: syntax error near unexpected token `('
 sh: -c: line 0: `svnserve --tunnel-user (null)  -t'
 svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

Our restricted login shell is trying to add "--tunnel-user username" on
the svnserver command line, and is unable to get your username.

Please add:

host cdcvs.fnal.gov
 ForwardX11 = no
 GSSAPIAuthentication yes
 GSSAPIDelegateCredentials yes

to your $HOME/.ssh/config file and make sure you use the "-f" flag to kinit (so your ticket is forwardable) and
all should be well.

Note that for newer ssh's, you may also need to add

  GSSAPITrustDNS yes

in the $HOME/.ssh/config as well; older versions won't accept that option.
