--non-interactive causing problem when non-interactive

I'm using Mac OSX Leopard on Intel, with the svn (1.4.4) that installed
with XCode Tools from the OS installation DVD.

I'm using an apple script to automate svn commands, which calls svn
--non-interactive, but even when the command in question wouldn't
otherwise be interactive, it causes svn to barf.

To debug the problem, I shelled out to command prompt and found the
following repeatable, strange behavior:

        eharvey$ svn update sandbox
        At revision 157.
        eharvey$ svn update --non-interactive sandbox
        svn: Can't get password

        eharvey$ svn update sandbox
        At revision 157.
Anybody have a clue why it would say "can't get password" in
non-interactive mode, even though the command would not otherwise be
