Are you 100% sure about that? svn shouldn't be using the gpg-agent
password store if it cannot contact a running gpg-agent.

You can tweak the password-stores option in the config file to avoid
this problem. Set it to an empty value, like this:

  ### Section for authentication and authorization customizations.
  [auth]
  ### Set password stores used by Subversion. They should be
  ### delimited by spaces or commas. The order of values determines
  ### the order in which password stores are used.
  ### Valid password stores:
  ### gnome-keyring (Unix-like systems)
  ### kwallet (Unix-like systems)
  ### keychain (Mac OS X)
  ### windows-cryptoapi (Windows)
  password-stores =
