Thanks for the prompt response, this is much appreciated. And
everything now works so it is good news!

Given that it uses the term javahl in the name and the term javasvn is
not, the conclusion that JavaSVN is being used is far from obvious. I
think some further thought needs to be given to the symbols appearing
with errors like this so as to lead people to the correcxt conclusions.

I tried:

        /opt/eclipse-3.1/eclipse -vmargs

and although it printed out:

Failed to load JavaHL Library.
These are the errors that were encountered:
no libsvnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl-1 in java.library.path
no svnjavahl in java.library.path
= /usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-sun/jre/lib/i386/client:/usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-sun/jre/lib/i386:/usr/lib/j2sdk1.5-sun/jre/../lib/i386:/home/users/russel/build/lib

it actually worked as it should, i.e. I didn't have to specify the
username and passphrase -- those seemed to be correctly picked up from
ssh-agent as it was before. So this get's me up and running fine.
Which is good :-)

I am not convinced that the message about error should be emitted. I
assume the plugin polls for JavaSVN at boot time but as JavaSVN is the
selection I made at the UI for my interaction type, it is not an error
that the JavaHL libraries were not found.

This would be a good move. This and my use of ssh-agent would mean all
I would have to do is:


and everything would work as expected.

PS There are a few minor infelicities on the Web page you pointed me
at, perhaps we could chat about doing some update offline?
