The subversion client sometimes makes multiple TCP connections to the
repository. This is by design. Repository connections are "objects"
that are created as needed.

If you're using ssh, however, then the 'ssh' binary will prompt you for
your password every time you make a repository connection. The only way
to deal with this is use an external caching program like 'ssh-agent' on
unix or putty's 'pageant' on windows.
