Which version of svn are you using? Please do always mention the
version number when asking questions here. This allows us to exclude
some possible known problems in past releases of Subversion when
replying to your questions.

Move the directory ~/.subversion/auth/svn.simple/ aside and try again.
You should then get a prompt which asks whether or not the password may be
stored in plaintext. Unless you have gnome-keyring runnig, in which case
svn might try to store the password there. Maybe you are using gnome-keyring
without being aware of it, and there is some problem with its setup?
Same question applies to the Kwallet feature of KDE, which can also be
used to store Subversion passwords on Linux.

If you do not get the plaintext-password prompt or have no gnome-keyring
and/or kwallet support, you're probably using a 1.5 or older release which
is not supported anymore.
