If it asks you for a password, it already uses the username you've
specified (otherwise it would ask you first for the username, then for
the password). There must be something else wrong.

Do you have Subclipse running on the same machine as TSVN? If not, then
you can't be sure that your line in the SVN config file really works.
If yes, then check also the settings in the TSVN settings dialog,
network tab - maybe those are set too and conflict with what you set in
the config file.
