As Mat pointed out in a previous post, the command line svn client caches your credentials. I do believe, though, that script/plugin install does use the svn command line client as the method to check out a plugin. From plugin.rb :

def use_svn?
  require 'active_support/core_ext/kernel'
  silence_stderr {`svn --version` rescue nil}
  !$?.nil? && $?.success?

def best_install_method
  return :http unless use_svn?
    when use_externals? then :externals
    when use_checkout? then :checkout
    else :export

Try giving the "-o" option to the install command:

# script/plugin install -o

You may get a message stating that the plugin is already installed, just add "--force" to the set of options.
