Fixing "Killed by signal 15." messages after Subversion operations

After upgrading my development environment to openSuSE 12.1, I started getting a bunch of notices like the below after every Subversion operation which uses SSH:

A    /tmp/svn25825/public/favicon.ico
Exported revision 16786.
Killed by signal 15.

The issue is discussed here; in a nutshell, the solution is to add "-q" to the ssh command invoked by SVN, which is defined in the configuration file (typically ~/.subversion/config). In my case, the line in question now looks like this:

ssh = $SVN_SSH ssh -q -o ControlMaster=no

Note: ensure this line is in the [tunnels] section of the config file.
