Subversion asking for password over and over again

From: Giulio Troccoli <Giulio.Troccoli_at_uk.linedata.com>

I have been using Subversion for a year or so now and I have 3
productions repositories and 3 or 4 testing repositories. I am using one
of these repositories to test some scripts I am writing.

My testing repository is a copy of a production one and what I did is:
- svnadmin dump
- create the repository dir
- svnadmin create
- svnadmin load
- copy the hooks from production to testing

The post-commit hook contains some code to change the log message, using
svn ps, and it works fine in production. However it does not in testing.
If I run the script manually svn stops when changing the svn:log
property to ask for the Subversion password. I thought this was fine the
first time, as it was a new repository, but even after I entered the
password the first time (and it was the correct password as svn ps
succeeded) this is not stored and I have to enter it again, making it
impossible for the post-commit script to work.

The strange thing is that when I use another user to commit the changes
to the repository (so that the post-commit script is call) subversion
asked me for the password just the first time.

I am very confused because firstly it seems that the password is stored
for one user and not the other, and secondly because I don't recall
having done anything in the production repository to tell subversion to
store the password so I don't know if I have to do something on the
testing repository.

Can anybody help please?
