Good. We've found the problem.

This store-plaintext-passwords option prevents the prompt from appearing.
Its default setting is 'ask', and that file overrides it to 'no'. So the
password is never stored.

Please refer to the documentation of this option in this section of the
svnbook: http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.7/svn.advanced.confarea.html#svn.advanced.confarea.opts.servers

You can override the system-wide /etc/subversion/servers config file by
configuring this option in the file ~/.subversion/servers as appropriate.
