svn mkdir and propagation of .svn/auth/

The following examples were tested with 0.20.0, both server and

Shouldn't "svn mkdir" create an auth/username and auth/password in the
newly created directory? In the following scenario it doesn't:

  % svn co http://localhost/svn/test
  k's password:
  Checked out revision 0.
  % cd test
  % ls -l .svn/auth/password
  -r-------- 1 k svn 8 Apr 3 18:03 .svn/auth/password
  % svn mkdir foo
  A foo
  % ls -l foo/.svn/auth
  total 0
  % svn ci -m ''
  Adding foo

  Committed revision 1.
  % ls -l foo/.svn/auth
  total 0

Even the "svn ci" does not create the auth/* files. This can lead to
the inconvenient situation that I have to enter the password again, as

  % cd foo
  % svn st -u
  k's password:
  Head revision: 1
