Ping! (I don't see a follow-up.)

I'm not familiar with this, but it sounds like this argument is backwards. If
"store_auth_creds" was set, then I would think it _would_ be a bug if
Subversion doesn't store the auth data. If "store-auth-creds" is commented
out, and the default is "no" (I haven't checked that it is), then I would not
expect it to store them and so I would expect it to ask for them again.

It asks again because you haven't told it to store the auth data ... or have I
missed something?
