Re: TortoiseSvn and account locked

I did have this problem only with the commit monitor (which is a
separate program and will successively fail with all repos it has to
watch, each time with a password error) and Subclipse/Subversive
I still might have kind of a solution: Since I am using the commit
monitor after changing the password before doing anything with Tsvn I
right-click on a random folder, go into Tsvn's settings and tell it to
forget all passwords in the "saved data" tab.
What I did have was an user whose Tsvn seemed from time to time to use
the wrong username with the wrong repo. But I hope the last update has
handled that.

Perhaps upgrading the *server* (or more specifically the program that
handles the authentification) might fix the problem: To me it sounds
like the server doesn't tell Tsvn that the failure of the connection is
based by a wrong password which would make it natural to retry to
establish a connection.

Kind regards,

In my society we work with TortoiseSvn (1.6 and 1.7) on windows XP and

Our policy is: each user must change his password every month and if a
user fills a wrong password 3 times, the account is lock.
So, when a user change is password, TortoiseSvn displays a pop up to ask
the new password. Sometimes, TortoiseSvn does not ask for the new
password and try (several times) to make a connection to SVN and lock
the account.

Did someone experienced this problem and how did you solved it?

For your information, we do not set proxy and SSH client in tortoiseSvn

Thanks for any feedback on this issue
