Historically the JavaHL adapter did not support this. Basically
because it did not call its prompt callbacks. I suspect someone has
now fixed this in 1.4 and they are calling a callback that had never
been used before now and it does not work. Will you file an issue in
our issue tracker?

If you have a publicly accessible repository you could provide access
to that would also help as this is a hard feature to test.

All that being said, I believe the SVNKit adapter supports this
feature correctly. See this for details and note that there is a
setting you have to enter before it works (explained in the link).
