Which Subversion version do you use on which operating system?

This behavior depends on the supported authentication key stores supported
on your operating system. On some operating systems (e.g. OS/X) using the
key store might give a popup dialog or question without a way to suppress
it.

To really support --non-interactive these keystores are disabled in these
cases.
