Possible bug in Saving Authentication Information

I downloaded and installed TortoiseSVN 1.3.5 when it became available.
Since then the "Save Authentication" option requires two logins to
complete successfully.
For example, I access a repository through RepoBrowser and am prompted
for login information. I enter my username and password and check the
"Save authentication" check box. Login is successful and I am taken to
the repo and directory specified, such as
http://subclipse.tigris.org/svn/subclipse/trunk/svnant. I then continue
to browse by expanding the svnant directory (clicking the '+' sign). I
am prompted again for login information. I repeat the previous login
attempt (enter username and password, check "Save authentication"
checkbox) and the svnant directory is expanded for me.
After this, I am never prompted for authentication information again.
It seems there is some sort of bug here as previous versions saved
authentication info after the first successful login attempt.
For what its worth, this occurs on repositories which are access via
http or https.
