subversion svn+ssh and password problems

I like to use subversion with SSH and password authentication to
access a repository. Unfortunately svn command line client ask two
times for a password and only the second time authentication
succeeds. I use subversion 1.1.4 on Debian or OpenBSD with OpenSSH
and can reproduce the problem. So it is definetely not an OpenSSH or
PAM issue. Next I tried subversion 1.2.3 and the svn client and now
I need to authenticate three times before it succeeds.

The main problem is that I think this is the reason why Eclipse 3.1
with Subclipse 0.9.33 under Windows XP does not work with Secure
Shell and password authentication. I tried both methods, JavaHL and
JavaSVN. The first one works great with public key authentication.

We will now switch over to https, but I would like to discuss if
this is a stupid problem on my side or a bug. I did not find
anything about it in the issue tracker or mailinglist archive.

Thanks for any help.
