Well, it's a shame but I've not tested my Subversion binary on Snow
Leopard. In theory, it should just work because the only real OS X
API we use is for the Keychain support and those APIs are still there,
unchanged. But I have heard of some reports where my binary's Apache
modules segfault. I've not heard of the password thing before you
though. I guess I'll have to finally build a Snow Leopard box for
testing.

Can you check to be 100% sure? You can do this by opening the
Keychain Access application, finding the url that you're looking to
and see if svn is available for accessing the Keychain entry.
