Is this really the status window (from which you can commit) or do you  
select Subversion → Commit…?

The Subversion bundle calls the svn shell command, we do our best to  
capture any password prompting that it might do, but I am sure there  
are a dozen situations in which it will fail.

So definitely it’s best to ensure that svn can commit w/o prompting  
the user for password.
