You are using SSH?

If so, my previous answer still applies. Subversion does not store
any credentials for SSH. It is all managed by your SSH client. On
Unix, normally you would have to start Eclipse from a terminal session
to be able to see any of the prompts from an OpenSSH client since they
are command line based.

The best option is to use certificates. Then you are either not
prompted at all, or if you protected your SSH key with a passphrase
you can run ssh-agent to unlock the key and manage your passphrase.
