about externals and username

From: Lluís Batlle i Rossell <viric_at_vicerveza.homeunix.net>

I have a repository:

I use it using another username than used in my own computer. So I specify
"myuser@", when getting "snodbuilder":
svn co svn+ssh://myuser@isildur.homelinux.net/home/svn-reps/snod/snodbuilder

I have a svn:externals property in snodbuilder directory as follows:
glis svn+ssh://isildur.homelinux.net/home/svn-reps/snod/glis
portage-overlay svn+ssh://isildur.homelinux.net/home/svn-reps/snod/portage-overlay

When svn tries to fetch the "externals", it forgets the 'username' used in that
host, and tries to log in to the repository server using my computer's
username. That's awful, because I cannot write "myuser@..." in the externals, as
other users must work with that repository directory (snodbuilder).

Is that a bug? How can I make everything work? Isn't there a "--username"
parameter for all the connections? Where does 'svn' get the username to try?
I've tried modifying "USER" environment variable.

I hope there's some kind of solution. :)
