Win32 1.2.0RC2: Strange Windows encryption bug / UI failure after reinstall.

Hi there,

After reinstalling Windows XP a few days back, I found that after
attempting my first commit with the newly installed machine, I get this
strange error: http://botanicus.net/dw/tmp/svn-protected-item.png

I tried entering a few different passwords into the text input control,
but the dialog box kept reappearing. On pressing cancel, my commit
succeeded anyway. It is also worth noting that the Description field in
the dialog appaers to be displaying uninitialised or binary data.

My machine exists in a domain with roaming profiles, and so my
application data and user registry hive were preserved across the
reinstall. Is it possible that Subversion has noted in %appdata% that my
repository password has been stored by the Windows security provider,
but after my reinstall this is no longer the case?

As for the strange Description field in the dialog, is it possible that
Subversion is stuffing internal data into a Windows struct that was
supposed to be used as a user-readable description, or simply isn't
initialising a struct member?

Otherwise, thanks for another excellent release!

David.
