Curiouser and curiouser. Applying jsch and ssh-agent to Google leads to
an email from Atsuhiko Yamanaka:

         If you ask the possibility that "jsch can communicate with
        ssh-agent program?", we will not be able to do. The ssh-agent
        program depends on unix-domain sockets and we can not handle
        them in pure java.

So it seems Java cannot access ssh-agent -- unless the situation between
Java and UNIX domain sockets has changed since last year. I suspect
not. Therefore that is not is what is happening. Unless something very
weird is happening.

I have even less idea how things happen now. I have three private SSH
keys: a Protocol 2 DSA key with passphrase; a Protocol 1 RSA key with
passphrase and a special purpose Protocol 2 DSA key with no passphrase.
My server does not allow Protocol 1 access and I am specifying the key
with a passphrase.

I start Eclipse with:

|> /opt/eclipse-3.1/eclipse -vmargs

and get the following on the console:

        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
        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

As soon as I attempt an access of a Subversion store either via update
in Java perspective or accessing any of the stores in Subversion
perspective there is an SSH transaction and I get the following
in /var/log/auth.log on the server:

        Sep 13 19:21:04 dimen sshd[2811]: Accepted publickey for russel from ::ffff: port 48046 ssh2
        Sep 13 19:21:04 dimen sshd[2813]: (pam_unix) session opened for user russel by (uid=0)

This means that whatever SSH system is being used by Eclipse/Subclipse
it has either found a way around requiring the passphrase or it is
getting authorization somehow to use the key even though
Eclipse/Subclipse has never asked for a passphrase.

We have now reached the end of my knowledge and experience. However if
there are some experiments I can undertake -- short of changing keys or
passphrases then I am willing to try.
