I originally posted a thread related to IDEA 8.0, but the problem persists in 8.0.1:
In IntelliJ 8.0 on OSX 1.5.5, I can't get the IDE to remember my SVN VCS credentials. Every time I perform any SVN operation in my projects, I am asked for my password multiple times. If I enter the password each time, eventually the operation succeeds. If I cancel any of the authentication dialogs, the operation fails. Checking the "Save credentials" button does nothing.
If I do an 'svn update' from a terminal, my credentials are properly cached.
If I open the same project file in IDEA 7.0.4, reconfigure the VCS root to make it forget my credentials, and try the same SVN operations, it asks for my credentials once, saves them, and all is well.
What could be happening here? Command line SVN works, IDEA 7.0.4 works, but 8.x refuses to cache my credentials.
