It is not in the power of Subclipse to fix this. The connection
management all lives within the Subversion API. I'd assume you would
get a boost by using SVNKit, as I thought they maintained a persistent
SSH connection that they reused. You could ask support_at_svnkit.com if
this is still true or if there are options for it. Perhaps they had
to make it more like Subversion native to fix a problem?
