%APPDATA%\Subversion is where the Subversion libraries store
configuration data on Windows. TortoiseSVN, the SVN command line, and
Subclipse when JavaHL is used, would all access this location. JavaHL
is part of Subversion and all of these clients use the exact same
code. FWIW, SVNKit will also access this area for certain things,
however it does use the Eclipse .keyring to cache credentials. So
your change was likely that you switched from SVNKit to JavaHL when
you installed the new version.
