If you connect using svn first, and then try to use bzr-svn after, does
it still prompt?

I thought there were difficulties handing info from bzr to svn code, so
if you use svn directly first, it can cache the credentials in a place
that it can then use it. I may be thinking to far back, though.

Alternatively, bzr-svn may only support some auth types.
