I am having the same problem, with svn 1.5.4 and 1.5.5 on OS X 10.5.x
(for all versions I've tried). I am using svn built from pkgsrc. OS X
does prompt me to allow keychain access every time I update svn.

As a workaround it would be nice for svn to separate "don't ask keychain
to be non-interactive" and "don't prompt for merge behavior". I use
this switch in merge scripts to do all the merging to be cleaned up
later, and have credentials, so it's really the merge prompting that I
am trying to avoid.
