Re: Option to force password prompt?

Why aren't each of these people logging on as a different user? It can
be a shared pc with multiple users logon, then each user just needs to
remember to log off as the password is only cached per windows user.

If you have some reason for using a shared user, maybe you should
consider looking into ways to stop doing that instead of repeatedly
clearing the subversion auth cache.
