The long struggle with Eclipse Subclipse plugin

I had to change password in SVN, and the new password was not being saved in svn.simple. For every operation I get the username/password popup. Running me crazy.

Googling, I find this article, so I do all the tricks:
deleted .keyring file
deleted the svn.simple file
Windows/Preferences/SVN and changed the Configuration Location to something else
started Eclipse as administrator
looked in Eclipse .log file in workspace looking for errors

Nothing worked. I HATE Eclipse.

Finally switching from SVN Interface JavaHL to SVNKit seems to fix the issue.

Unless you HAVE to use Eclipse, seriously consider switching to IntelliJ. Seriously.
