So is it the svn command that writes the files:


or just JavaSVN? Which ever it is there is something very wrong here.
As you can tell I am somewhat shocked that any tool is writing my
passphrase in plain text on the filestore.

Uuuuu..... I never enter a username / passphrase in a dialogue box so I
am not sure

I just deleted the key information files and restarted Eclipse with the
command line arguments and a new key information file was written so I
assume it is JavaSVN doing this. I have no idea where the checkbox is.
