As of SVN 1.4, on Macs Subversion caches your credentials in your
Keychain. See http://www.friday.com/misc/r17619.txt and

That takes care of the "why is it accessing" question.

I'm away from my Mac right now so I can't check to see whether my
creds are in my keychain or ~/.subversion. I haven't used SVN on it
extensively yet but I should have at least one set of creds cached
