If you're asked for your password then things are wrong.  Code will never
accept a password, so if it asks you might as well quit out.  If you quit
then you might not get locked out.

But this implies your ssh key isn't around.  Can you just do a normal svn
svn+ssh:// command from the same account?

Check your SVN URL and SSH config locally?  Although if you were able to
get a git checkout from code then you SHOULD be able to use SVN -- the
keys should be the same set.
