Option to force password prompt?

I just did something hackish in an attempt to prevent people from
accidentally committing under the wrong username on a shared dev box in
our office. (I keep checking the logs and seeing my username next to
commit messages that I didn't write!)

So I wrote the following one-line batch script:

REM TSVNAuthClobber.bat
del /q "C:\Documents and Settings\Gforce\Application

and told the Task Scheduler to run it on startup, and every 60 minutes
thereafter. (I wanted to run it when users log off, too, but there
doesn't seem to be an option for that in Task Scheduler.)

This kinda/sort works, but leaves me wondering if there's not already a
better way? Can I make TortoiseSVN pop up an (already-populated)
username/password confirmation dialog so that people will remember to
log in as themselves if the cached username isn't theirs?

(Sorry if this is a FAQ, but I didn't see it anywhere...)
