I'm not familiar with eclipse and the issue doesn't identify the cause
of the problem. Does the problem still occur? Which versions of
Subversion are affected? What API is Subclipse using?

I wrote some Java clients to allow me to play with JavaHL authn, see
r1640533. Using these clients the keyring works when using the new
org.apache API in 1.9. It also works using the old org.apache API in
1.9, 1.8 and 1.7. It also works using the very old org.tigris API in
1.9. However I can't get the keyring to work with very old org.tigris
API in 1.8 or 1.7. In 1.6 only the very old org.tigris API is available
and enabling the keyring appears to prevent authn working at all. I'm
seeing a failure to prompt, or to save, but not the hang reported in
3498. I suppose this might be the same problem but it's hard to tell
because the problem has not been fully diagnosed in the issue.

It's possible that upgrading Subversion, or the APIs used by Subclipse,
might fix the problem.
