Subject Subversion doesn't store credentials in kwallet
Date Thu, 19 Mar 2015 10:00:52 GMT

I'm experiencing a problem with using KWallet as a password store.  My 
operating system is openSUSE 13.2 (x86_64) and I can reproduce the issue 
with the Subversion 1.8.11 (r1643975) binaries provided by openSUSE, as 
well as Subversion 1.9.0-beta1 compiled from source (configured only with 
--libdir=/usr/local/lib64 and no other options, and built with GCC 4.8.3).

In my ~/.subversion/config I have KWallet storage enabled with the 
following lines:

password-stores = kwallet

Despite this, when I try to check out or commit files with a password-
protected repository, Subversion doesn't invoke KWallet to fetch or store 

> $ svn co
> Authentication realm: <> Foobar Domain Login
> Password for 'bar': ********

> Store password unencrypted (yes/no)?

Any idea what could be wrong here?  Other applications on my system don't 
have any problem using KWallet.  And I wasn't having this problem a few 
months ago, so I'm assuming something broke after an upgrade of Subversion 
and/or KWallet.

I see someone else has already opened an issue for this at 
<> but it's been 
closed due to their not having first posted the issue here.
