In my case the problem persisted until I deleted the default keyring. Using Mate Linux you can use this command to delete the default key file:

rm ~/.config/mate/keyrings/default

That solved the problem for me...

None of the solutions googled (removing keyrings from ~/.gnome2, blanking password-stores from ~/.subversion/config, ...) worked for me. I had to unset environment variables GNOME_KEYRING_CONTROL GNOME_KEYRING_PID in my startup files (~/.xsession or whatever) in order to prevent their values being inherited from the desktop/login environment.
