Re: Fairly urgent password problem

We had a related problem with the Location dialog. If you specify a
username/password in the dialog those are *also* cached by Eclipse it seems.
Because our machines can be used by multiple developers this is a big problem
because they could end up using other persons connection configurations.
So now we have the policy that before first time access to a Repository Location
   (using Subclipse) a developer first has to authenticate using the svn
commandline client. Then the authentication information is stored within his/her
profile (in clear text by the way) and when using Subclipse no username/password
specification is allowed.

If it would be possible to have Subclipse *not* store the username/password
information within some Eclipse cache that would be great and simplify our
procedures big.
And then be able to modify it through Subclipse would really remove the need to
use the svn command line client completely.
