Hard to tell. Did you compile it yourself, or are you using your
distribution's Linux? And have you looked in .subversion for the
authorization file with your password stored in it?
Mind you, I provoundly loathe this feature. It puts your passwords in
clear text in your $HOME/.subversion directory, and is one of the
reasons I so strongly espouse svn+ssh access, which typically relies
on SSH keys.
