Stephan,

Sharing a sandbox and a Windows session with other developers is not bad
behavior. Consider side-by-side development (pair programming)? Isn't this
a good activity? In that case, wouldn't it be nice if there were a faster
way to clear the tsvn auth data?

Thanks, that will work. However, using it does violate the abstraction of
how tsvn implements its auth data storage, which is a bad behavior.

And, if we're going to get philosophical and debate what's good and bad, one
could argue that using Windows (instead of Mac or Linux) is a bad behavior.
Certainly, TortoiseSVN promotes the use of Windows ;)

Cheers,

-Jim
