I've found more interesting behavior.
I was doing this work on the command line for a few minutes, supplying the manual "--password" command-line parameter. After I finished that work I went back to Eclipse and I later realized that I wasn't getting prompting from SVN anymore. I then went back to the command line and tried not supplying the "--password" parameter, and it worked fine.
If I understand this correctly, when you supply a working password through either the command line or Subversive, neither should ask again. The command line appears to have stored it correctly, but Subversive did not.
I then tried restarting Eclipse (just to be sure), and it's still not presenting the password dialog.
