I believe that he is using JavaHL, which uses the "normal" ssh client and
therefore works with the ssh-agent. JavaSVN uses a pure Java SSH library
named JSch. In all likelihood that library does not work with ssh-agent.

A future version of Subclipse/JavaSVN is going to extend the current
prompt to allow you to be prompted for your key file and passphrase with
the option of allowing JavaSVN to cache that information.
