Windows command-line client 1.3.1 ignores username option

I posted this on the USERS list, but got no response.

I have just upgraded my SVN client from 1.2.3 to 1.3.1 (Windows client).
Our server has also recently been upgraded to SVN 1.3.1 (Apache 2/DAV).

Since upgrading, the --username and --password options do not seem to
work.
I have done a series of tests, and I see some strange behavior.

For instance if I do:
   svn mkdir --no-auth-cache --username Fred URL -m "message"

I get different results depending upon the version of the client I am
using:
   Client 1.2.3 prompts me for Fred's password, and all is good.
   Client 1.3.1 the password is not prompted for, and I get an access
error.

Furthermore, in the Apache access.log file on the server, I see that the
username (Fred) is apparently not being passed.
Instead I see my own username (Mark).

My questions are:
1. Where does the username (Mark) come from in this scenario?
2. How do I use the --username option with the 1.3.1 client?

Thank you,
Mark Johnson
