Yes, and some actions seem to be without cancellation points altogether,
like log. I noticed that RapidSVN couldn't cancel the prompt properly, and
took that to be a bug in RapidSVN, but I see now that RapidSVN is probably
doing as much as it can towards cancelling an action.

To see how this works, open RapidSVN, right-click on a file under revision
control, select 'log', select 'cancel' in the auth dialog, and notice the
following report in the status pane:

Error while preparing action: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/repos/file'
PROPFIND of '/svn/repos/file': authorization failed (http://www.server.org)

The error is caused by Neon trying to complete the request with missing
authorization, despite the cancel.
