Force windows client to use certain authentication

Hi all.

The background of the problem is that we have visual-svn server running (somewhere) and it is painfully slow to use with windows. With linux the server works fast. We are speaking 90sec vs 3sec in 'svn up'. I did some package capture with wireshark and i see that windows client is doing lots of LDAP queries and waiting for responses. The visual svn server also provides browser interface, and that also works fine (with windows). I know that the proper answer is that "fix your server/domain" but unfortunately its not my call.

So, i would like to make my life bearable by forcing my windows svn client to use http-basic authentication (to skip windows domain authentication that i think is causing slow performance). And based on manual i think would need to set "http-auth-types" = "basic".

I tried setting %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Subversion\servers setting "http-auth-types" and i was able to get error by setting it to "FOO" (so its proper file and its red ok). Setting it to "basic" seems to have no effect; the same (slow) authentication cycle continues.

I tried also configuration line option --config-option=servers:global:http-auth-types=FOO - it gives error on linux but works fine on windows, without effect (dont know why!).

I am running "svn, version 1.8.8 (r1568071), compiled Feb 18 2014, 20:42:30 on x86-microsoft-windows" and the schema is HTTPS that is handled by "ra_serf".

Any suggestions what i am doing wrong?
