Except now it has reverted to popping up the GUI login dialog when I
am checking in via a PuTTY session.
In PuTTY it just sits there doing nothing, if I then open the VNC
window into the RPi then I see the login dialog there. :(

How should the setting in subversions config file look like?
Right now it is as follows (uncommented the existing line)

password-stores = gpg-agent,gnome-keyring,kwallet

Should something be taken out or something else added to make it stop
this behaviour and always demand login on the terminal that issues the
svn operation?

It seems so strange that svn would use a completely different window
to get the credentials from than the one where svn itself runs.
