...and you had to delete the WCs... Hmm... You're not using an ancient
version of Subversion, are you? The credentials used to be stored in the
working copies, but that was a very long time ago.

Anyway, that's a side track. Your point that Subversion should not cache
passwords by default is convincing, especially since we now have a knob
to control just that. I'll think about it some more and look into it.
