I've realised there is another difference in the current behaviour. The
way auth works is that Subversion records whether a particular provider
was used to store a particular password. The KDE provider will only
prompt to open the wallet when the auth data indicates that KDE was used
to store a particular password. The GNOME provider prompts to unlock the
keyring whenever any password is requested, before checking the auth
data to see if this particular password was stored in the keyring.

I don't see any advantage to the GNOME behaviour, it looks more like a
bug than a feature.
