I already ran into this error. It happens when users have "too many" different keys in their keyring (which is not really too many, as it is good to have different keys for different sites).
When being given so many keys, the SSH daemon closes the connection because it exhaust all of its allowed tries before being sent the right key.
So, the solution is that Gna! sysadmins update the configuration file of sshd to allow for more tries (typically, 20 instead of 6).

I did everything that was written on, however each time I try to do execute the command : "svn co svn+ssh:// amcqanalyser " I get the folowing error :
" svn: To better debug SSH connection problems, remove the -q option from 'ssh' in the [tunnels] section of your Subversion configuration file.
svn: La connexion réseau a été fermée de façon inattendue
I started again from the beginning several times, waiting 3 hours to be sure that the rsa key was ok, but I have always the same error. I was not able to find the solution to my issue on the help pages of the website or on the internet.

So thank you for helping me to solve this issue.
