Emacs (Aquamacs) VC (SVN) failure to authenticate

At somepoint when I upgraded my Aquamacs this stopped working:
C-x v v  within aquamacs should do an "svn commit".

svn: E215004: Authentication failed and interactive prompting is disabled; see the --force-interactive option
svn: E215004: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E215004: Unable to connect to a repository at URL ''
svn: E215004: No more credentials or we tried too many times.
Authentication failed

Aquamacs version:
GNU Emacs 23.4.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin12.3.0, NS apple-appkit-1187.37) of 2013-06-13 on - Aquamacs Distribution 2.5

from cmd-line, same thing!  I thought that worked.
GNU Emacs 24.3.1 (x86_64-apple-darwin12.5.0) of 2013-12-22 on

there is the possibility something in my .emacs
no; 'emacs -q' produces the same thing.

vc.el ?  I guess next step is to load the elisp source, and start to dig in.

For now, I've reverted to calling svn from the cmd line.
I'm trying to switch over to git anyway, and this just encourages that (because vc+git is (still) working)...
