There might be some caching somewhere.

On my PC there is the following folder:
%APPDATA%\Subversion\auth\svn.username\

It contains a file with some numeric name and containing
[[[
K 15
svn:realmstring
V 36
<some UUID here>
K 8
username
V 10
<name here>
END
]]]

It is not my usual user name, but one I used in some scripts with
--no-auth-cache --non-interactive.

Modification date of that file is ~year ago, so it is likely that it
was last updated by a SVN 1.6 client.

None of my usual user names is mentioned in that folder.

Best regards,
