I think I know what's the problem:
the '--no-auth-cache' param of the command line is *not* for suppressing
authentication. The only thing it does is if you have to provide
authentication data, it won't store that data on disk for later use.

Now, you said you tried the commandline with --no-auth-cache and it
worked, then you used TSVN 1.4.1 and *cleared the auth cache*, and
you're asked for authentication. That means that before when you used
the command line client, the auth data stored on disk was used
(--no-auth-cache is only for *storing* the data - it it is already
stored it is still used). After clearing the auth cache, no
authentication data is available anymore and you're asked for
authentication data.
