[Subclipse-users] svnant and missing home dir

How does the svn ant task determine the location of the svn config dir?

I had a unix machine running svnant and the home dir was on a NFS share.
The NFS server went down so I created a local home dir under tmp and set the
HOME variable to it. When I ran svn commandline I was asked for username
and password once and then my creds were cached from that point forward.
But, my svnant tasks failed with an *authentication cancelled* even after
the auth cache*. *I tried passing the home dir via -Duser.home=$HOME and
it still didn't work.

I created a new local user who had a local home dir and once I had cached
the auth via the commandline client, the ant script work perfectly.

So, if I need to change my HOME how to I tell svnant about it?
