Works for me (git

	git clone git://github.com/matthew-brett/scipy-work.git
	git svn init -s --prefix=svn/ http://svn.scipy.org/svn/scipy
	git remote add svn http://projects.scipy.org/git/scipy.git
	git svn rebase -l -n

Are you sure you typed the correct commands? Perhaps you have to 
"rm -rf .git/svn" if it contains old cruft from your previous tries?
Perhaps there's some cruft in .git/config?

Also, I'd rather use "git rebase svn/trunk" than "git svn rebase", as
the latter is quite a bit more magical.
