svn ignores --password and prompts anyway

From: Steve Perry <steve.perry_at_makotoconsultinggroup.com>

I'm running svn client 1.4.2 (r22196) and it appears that when I pass
the --password option to svn (if I'm, say, doing a log to see what's
changed) I am prompted for a password anyway. Normally, I wouldn't
grumble about this, but I am using the svn client with Cruise Control,
so this is going to be a problem... It is definitely the svn client,
though (and not Cruise). When running as, say, user cruise, I type:

svn --password foo log whatever/myproject

I am still prompted for a password. No dice either when I try:

svn --username cruise --password foo whatever/myproject

(even though, like I said, I'm running as user cruise). ** Other than
needing to interactively enter the password in order for the command
(and any other command I've tried, btw, such as checkout) to succeed, it
works fine. ** Anyone ever run into this? This is really putting a
damper on my Cruise Control mojo... Thanks for any (useful) help.
