Hi Alexander,

Thanks for the response.

already have different authentication data.

What I mean is that all users are using a common Windows account (e.g.,
Guest) for logging in to Windows, but each has a different svn account for
using TortoiseSVN. So, we need an easier way of clearing the TortoiseSVN
saved authentication information that is stored in the common Windows
account.

Thanks,

-Jim
