Steps to reproduce: on a fresh Windows XP (without TortoiseSVN installed), install Eclipse 3.2.1 and Subclipse 1.1.9. Try to browse an svn repository that uses https with a self-signed certificate and requires authentication. Subclipse will continually prompt for credentials, and will in fact never successfully browse the repository, instead it continually prompts for credentials.
My current workaround is to install TortoiseSVN, which for some reason causes Subclipse to start caching the credentials and successfully connecting to the https repository.
This is a known bug in Subversion that has been fixed and will be in 1.4.3.
I'm confused as to how this could be a server-side bug, since it's worked-around by installing TortoiseSVN on the client. Will a new release of Subclipse fix this behavior? We are using subversion 1.3 on the server.
