Did you change anything in ~/.subversion/config or ~/.subversion/servers
from the defaults?

Are there any files in the /etc/subversion/ directory?
If so, what do they contain?

What type of URL are you using to access the repository?
Are you using https:// or svn+ssh:// or something else?

If you're using svn+ssh authentication is managed by ssh, not Subversion.
In that case you need to set up an ssh-agent to avoid password prompts.
