219 - SVN - Authorization failed

I am having problems authenticating.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
------------------------------------------------

I created a pair of keys like described here: http://www.curseforge.com/projects/curseforge/pages/how-to-use-tortoise-svn-over-ssh-in-312-easy-steps/ (with puttygen).

I set my public key at http://www.curseforge.com/users/current-profile/public-key/edit/
It looks like "ssh-rsa AAAAB3Nza....rsa-key-20080530", just longer, all in one line (copied from puttygen)

I saved my private key to a file, started pageant and loaded the private key (since I set a passphrase when I generated the key I had to provide the passphrase when loading the key)

To test my repository I tried to browse it with Tortoise:
right klick in Explorer, "TortoiseSVN->Repo-browser"
I copied the development-url from my project page into the URL textbox of Tortoise and klick ok. When opening "trunk" i get "Error * Authorization failed"

I several times checked if
- pageant ist running with the right private key loaded
- I uploaded the right public key
- as expected, when pageant is not running I do get a diffrent error "Connection closed unexpectedly" so I can be sure, that Tortoise IS using pageant

Same error (Authorization failed) occurs, when trying to import.

In the Tortoise-Network settings I left the SSH-Client field empty because as far as I kow Tortoise is using TortoisePlink.exe by default, which is a modified version of the plink tool from the putty suite and uses the keys provided in pageant.

Tortoise Version: TortoiseSVN 1.4.8, Build 12137 (newest)

Same error (authorization failed) occurs, when using Subclipse SVN client in Eclipse.

    This is essentially fixed by allowing svn password and non-ssh

    I don't know if it's just a copy/paste error when writing the ticket but my public key starts with "ssh-rsa" (two 's').

    Yeah. Just copy/paste error, when writing the ticket.
    Thanks anyway.
