Subversion 1.6 on Ubuntu Server 11.x

I posted about this on the Ubuntu forums but thus far nobody has replied.

When SSH'd into the box and using svn operations, I'm getting the dastardly
warning about my password is going to get stored to disk unencrypted.

I read about Subversion 1.6 security
changes<http://blogs.collab.net/subversion/2009/07/subversion-16-security-improvements/>
.
I read about Subversion 1.6 on Ubuntu Server over at
superuser.com<http://superuser.com/questions/186575/whats-the-best-way-to-store-an-encrypted-svn-password-on-ubuntu-server>
.
I read about gnome-keyring over at
stackoverflow<http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3824513/svn-encrypted-password-store>
.

I've been doing a lot of reading on it.

I have done the following:

* installed gnome-keyring

*edited my ~/.subversion/config to turn
password-stores = gnome-keyring

edited my ~/.subversion/servers to
store-passwords = yes
store-plaintext-passwords = no

Thing is, I'm not using any GUI so it's still not working. Should I try
encfs ?

I read another post about a tool from CollabNet called keyring_tool but I
don't have it on this system. Where do I get that? I've never run into these
issues before (new distro, new svn version).

Any additional insight would be very much appreciated.
