We are using a subversion 1.3.x Server (apache) and are evaluating to
switch to 1.4 now. I am using Tortoise 1.4 client since two weeks now and
we have a strange behaviour:

The original svn.exe client stores the user/password in the users windows
profile directory (e.g. /Anwendungsdaten/Subversion/auth/...). Also,
Tortoise 1.3 uses those file in order to cache the password.
Tortoise 1.4 in contrast does not bother about those files. It does not
show a password-dialog if those files are not present at all or if some
other user stored his password locally, using the svn.exe commandline tool.
Tortoise does just check everything in...
We use the authentication against a domain server (which is configured in
the apache configuration). So the user I use is my windows user. Tortoise
seems just somehow to be able to "use" my windows user to check everything
in, although I did not store any subversion password before. A checkin with
svn.exe does not work without entering the password.

Has anyone experienced the same effect? I wonder what will happen next
week, when my windows will warn me to change my windows-password again
after a certain period. Which password will Tortoise use then... If I
didn't enter or store any password or username in tortoise (and even
explicitly deleted the auth-cache using the Button in the Tortoise Settings

If anyone has an idea, why this worked with tortoisesvn 1.3 and not with
1.4 anymore, please let me know:
