Last paragraph:

"A final note: when using svn+ssh:// URLs to access a repository,
remember that it's the ssh program prompting you for authentication, and
not the svn program. That means there's no automatic password caching
going on (see the section called “Client Credentials Caching”). If you
want to prevent ssh from repeatedly asking for your password, you'll
need to use a separate memory-caching tool like ssh-agent on a Unix-like
system, or pageant on Windows."
