Not in this case, since it caches it using an Eclipse mechanism.

It is without question an issue with SVNKit. Subclipse has zero involvement
in this sort of thing. Well not zero, we do have to pass the string you
entered along to SVNKit. I already reported this to them this AM.

I do not really follow this, but I take your word for it. JavaHL is just an
option (the default at that), and we include it on Windows. The only issue
is that you do need an SSH client, such as TortoisePlink. Anyway, I only
raised it because you did. You said those work.
