Anyone ever have this issue?

To better debug SSH connection problems, remove the -q option from 'ssh' in the [tunnels] section of your Subversion configuration file. An unknown Subversion error occurred. (code = 210002)

What do you mean by '"Versions"' in the title? – ptman Jan 14 '11 at 8:49
@ptman, Versions is a Subversion client for OSX – LukeR Jan 14 '11 at 9:14
What are you trying to do when it throws that error? Can you perform the same action at the command line? A bit more info might help. – LukeR Jan 14 '11 at 9:45

I have not had this issue before. Without more information, it's hard to produce a solid answer. The best answer I can give is to edit your config file and look for the tunnels section and look for a line similar to this:

    tunnelName=/usr/bin/ssh -p 2000 -l user

Remove the -q option from whatever entry is in the tunnels list. This should allow you to better debug the problem and provide more information about the cause.

Additionally, here is a resource on SSH Subversion configuration:
