First of all, it's not TortoiseSVN that remembers your authentication
data, it's Subversion itself.

Subversion remembers the auth data according to the URL and the
authentication text your server provides (e.g. by the 'AuthName' config
in Apache).

Of course, if your URL and the auth text doesn't change, then how should
any program even know that it's a different auth challenge? It may as
well be that your server changed the auth data itself.

You need to change your server setup to make this work. I don't think
any program would remember the auth data here correctly.
