Username & Password cache

We use SubVersion for a lot of projects and every now and then we add a
new usergroup with different access restrictions. Before we pass the
details to that new usergroup, we normally test that group to see
whether we correctly set all restrictions. However when checking out a
new repos, it uses the cached password and username. Somehow it seems to
assign username and password to a specific SVN URL, not to a working
copy. Problem is, I have to clear my whole cache in order to be able to
enter a different username/password.

Question is: can you link the username/password combination to the
working copy and not to the URL? This way I can have multiple working
copies of the same project with different usernames/passwords.

Or maybe even better, would it be possible to have an option to clear
passwords individually and NOT all passwords at once? I can imagine an
option in the command shell when right clicking on your Working Copy
like "TortoiseSVN->Clear Username/Password". For us that would be really

Thanks a lot!

Kind regards,
