RE: GNOME keyring in Subclipse bug

I can reproduce (what I think is) the crash in Eclipse 4.3 +
Subclipse 1.10.6 + JavaHL 1.8.10 + Subversion 1.8.10.

If you have a Subversion config that allows use of gnome-keyring (e.g. a
default or blank configuration on a Unix-like system), you'll get an
unfriendly prompt that wants to disable all password caching. If you cancel
that prompt, but then start connecting to authenticated Subversion
repositories (via e.g. Window -> Open Perspective -> ... -> SVN repository
exploring), you'll be able to crash Eclipse by trying to do operations that
require credentials, like info or checkout. It pops up a dialog before it
dies saying "An internal error occurred"..."invalid thread access".

Here's some more information that I could find about the bug:
