I'm using SSH connection sharing and the master (started at 12:39,
i.e. the same master as with the hanging svn) is still working.

Unfortunately strace is not installed on the server.

Concerning the svn client, that's

strace: Process 19549 attached

and for the SSH client:

strace: Process 19565 attached
restart_syscall(<... resuming interrupted restart_syscall ...>

I've asked the sysadmin, but since the SSH master still works,
I doubt that this would be related.

I don't know how to reproduce the problem. The master is already
started with -vvv, but there are no dates. However, I don't see
anything suspicious.

After doing a SSH connection via the master and quitting, I get
concerning the status:

debug3: channel 3: status: The following connections are open:
  #1 mux-control (t16 r2 i0/0 o0/0 e[closed]/0 fd 6/6/-1 sock 6 cc -1)
  #2 client-session (t4 r0 i0/0 o0/0 e[write]/0 fd 7/8/9 sock -1 cc 1)
  #3 mux-control (t16 nr0 i3/0 o3/0 e[closed]/0 fd 10/10/-1 sock 10 cc -1)

#2 can only be the session of the hanging svn.
