You can get around the problem by installing the server certificate in
your servers file. That solution is both easier to use and more
secure. See the book for the full explanation, but it is essentially:

        ringstrom = ringstrom.mine.nu

        ssl-authorities-file = /home/tori/.subversion/ringstrom.pem

If you do it like this, you will not get the prompt at all (unless
someone is trying to hack you).
