Ah, now I got it:
the crash only happens if you have saved the auth for the repo
(tigris.org in the example above) with a different username as "guest".

For example, I have saved the auth for tigris.org there with my username
"steveking" so I get commit access.

If I then pass --username=guest in a script because I only need read
access, it crashes every time.

So it's not as bad as I thought before.
I guess it's only a bigger problem in case you use scripts which use
different auth data.
