I've just looked at the svncpp code, and it looks like you're installing
the ssl_server_trust and ssl_client_cert_pw prompt providers before the
corresponding file providers. That means that the prompt functions will
always be called, even if there are cached credentials available. If you
fix the ordering problem, you will also work around the auth bug you

There is no doubt that you did find a bug in the authentication design,
though. Personally I'd like to have it fixed because it's not good to
have a broken design, and the risk is pretty small. It will have to be
voted for though, so anything can happen. But even if that bug is fixed,
you need to change the order of the providers in svncpp.
