svn+ssh. It occurs with version 1.4 or 1.5. All I'm doing is running
"svn blame file1.c file2.c etc". For every other command I'm familiar
with, I'm prompted only once per run of 'svn' for my password, which
makes sense and is what I want.

In many cases I'm on a temporary machine and setting up ssh keys is
more pain than it's worth. It's also convenient from a security
perspective as I don't have to worry about caching; my password is
required for every single 'svn' invocation. I'm sure I can fiddle
with ssh-agent and whatnot to have immediate timeouts, but, why bother
(and, would it even solve the issue at hand in such a case?) ?
