As I said before, I could solve my problem by creating a new Windows
Account. But it sounds strange that I would need to set up Apache or
svnserve and force using an authentification (which can be annoying)
ONLY to change the "Author" name !

I definitely think the "author" name should be more easily configurable.
Is there a "wish-list" for Tortoise ? ;)
