Technically, Subclipse doesn't ask. Subclipse provides a callback function
to the Subversion API that it can use to ask for your username and password
if it needs it. It is possible that you have credentials cached already
based on the use of another SVN client.
Type %APPDATA%\Subersion\auth\svn.simple in the Windows Run dialog. This
will open the area where Subversion caches the passwords. It does so in the
files that are stored in that folder. Find the right one and delete it.
