ra_svn auth problem (keychain services)

I'm getting a bit lost in the logic around auth, but I think it
appears that ra_svn is not using the OS X keychain services. Only, I
can't quite connect all the dots. Anybody got any pointers for me?

What I know:

  - The context is SCPlugin (see our bug 83, http://scplugin.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=83)
  - The Subversion in question is 1.4.5 (released tarballs)
  - the reported error is "Can't get password"

I can only find that string in two spots in the code: something
command-line specific (which would not be us), and libsvn_ra_svn/
client.c:do_auth, in the "CRAM-MD5" branch. The user confirms that
the ra is svn, and that the credentials do get entered into the
keychain during check out. But when he goes to check in, he gets this
error. By inspection, that would mean that
svn_auth_first_credentials() returns nothing, and that would mean that
no provider in the list offers a "first" credential. But we stuff the
provider list with the keychain provider, which does do first (and
that works for http://....). So it seems like I've come full circle
and reached a contradiction. How do I get off this merry-go-round?
