We had this problem reported once before [1], no solution was posted  

But based on the man file for ssh, this error would indicate that  
SSH_ASKPASS and you have a passphrase on your key pair.

To see which variables are set in the environment, type ‘env’ in  
TextMate (on a blank line) and then press ⌃R.

As for passphrase, you may want to try and remove the passphrase from  
your private key, see if that solves it.

Well… if things are setup correctly, it will pop up a window, yes.  
But seeing how X11 and the DISPLAY variable is involved in this, I  
would be surprised if it “just works” on OS X.

I am assuming you are running Blame not on a file under subversions  
control, right?

At least I can reproduce this problem with some random file *not*  
under svn control, but for files which actually have svn info, I cannot.

Is this also for a file *not* under svn control?
