Me neither. But I'd expect either there is something similar to the IE
control (in which case there's no problem) or it must be implemented in
that svn client itself (in which case the password prompt can be
implemented right there).

True. IMHO the URL is not necessarily needed (but nice anyway) since the
user supposedly knows where to find his issue tracking system anyway.

More fantasizing: If we had the URL on commit, it could even be stored
as a revision property. But: this would actually be a server side job
(through some hook) not the svn client's. BTW: That's what I was trying
with the ticket number lately - didn't have time to finish my
experiments though :-(

Later on, if that revision property was in place, TSVN could provide a
link e.g. from that revision's log entry which opens the browser with
the ticket URL!

I know, I'm starting to be immoderate...
