This is why we recommend that you not enter a username and password in
Subclipse and just let it prompt you when needed. There is a FAQ entry in
our FAQ as well as a topic in the online help.

As of the 0.9.100 release you can no longer enter a username and password
in Subclipse but for existing connections you have to blank out any saved
values from the Properties option.
