TSVN should always ask for authentication if it fails with the stored

Only if you would change the password while a dialog is open, then it
would not ask again.

Also, three failed authentications is maybe a bit low: When starting the
repository browser, TSVN issues multiple svn commands with each one
requiring authentication.

If you really require password changes that often, maybe looking into
using SSPI (formerly known as NTLM) authentication with a windows domain
would be a very good alternative: then users are authenticated using the
windows logon credentials, so it's always correct.
