indeed, that took me one step forward. I removed the .keyring, switched
to SvnKIT and tried a refresh. It asked for login/password which I
entered, then a new dialog pops up, asking for "Enter SVN Author Name".
Normally, I use my full name here "Thomas Hallgren". This is different
from my login. So I tried using that again and I got the same error.
Now, since the error states "Requested username does not match", and
since "Author Name is never queried when using JavaHL, I got suspicious.
I closed my IDE, removed the .keyring again, and retried. This time, I
used my login name as the "Author Name". And behold, now it works OK.
Question is, what has happened? Why must my "Author Name" suddenly be
equal to my login? When is the "Author Name" ever used for authentication?
