Console issue with svn+ssh on osx

I'm trying to get svn+ssh working on OSX with little success. I have
an anonymous svn connection working just fine using JavaHL, but need
ssh access to be able to commit. I also have svn+ssh connections
working just fine on the command line. I tried using JavaSVN, but
can't even get a non-ssh connection working as it fails with the
error message "svn: Unknown command 'get-locations'" (server version

The server I'm trying to access is svn://svn.forge.objectweb.org/
I have a fairly limited account, so I can't get a private key in there.

If I run eclipse from Finder, when I try to create the repository svn
+ssh://svn.forge.objectweb.org/svnroot/xwiki , it fails with the error:

     Network connection closed unexpectedly
svn: Connection closed unexpectedly

Note that the only field I have populated is URL, I also tried
combinations of the others without any success.

If I run eclipse from the command line, the ssh prompt for password
shows up in the console window from which I launched eclipse, so I'm
thinking that something funky is going on with with the handling of
stdin/out in the javahl/ssh layer. If I specify my username in the
url, and type the passwd in the console I launched eclipse from, then
things seem to work fine. However, typing my passwd (twice!) for
every op is unworkable, so I'd like subclipse to be able to handle my
ssh user/pass for me. Is this possible?

I'm using eclipse 3.1/subclipse 0.9.33/metissian svn 1.2.3 on Mac OS X

Any help appreciated, thanks,
