Tortoise later than 1.3.5 unable to authenticate on my computer

I have been using Subversion and Tortoise for about a year now, and am very

I have my repositories stored on a Windows 2003 Server, with Apache
installed. I access the repositories using https. Authentication using
DAV. The Windows 2003 server is also a domain controller for "mydomain",
but my computer is NOT part of the domain. I authenticate as
mydomain\myusername when accessing the repositories. I log in to my
computer using a local account; "myusername".

I am however stuck with an old version (1.3.5) of Tortoise on *my computer*.
If I try a newer version, I get an 'PROPFIND request failed on ...: 403
Forbidden ...' when trying to browse or otherwise access a repository. I
have installed the latest version on other computers, and it works fine -
connecting to the same server, using the same username and password that
fail on my computer.

I have used File Monitor from SysInternals.com to log the file access on my
computer when trying to access the repository.

Using Tortoise 1.3.5 I see that both ...\auth\svn.ssl.server and
...\auth\svn.simple are read. In the Apache's acces.log, domain name is
correctly shown in lower case characters.

After upgrading to 1.4.3, Tortoise only reads ...\auth\svn.ssl.server. If I
clear my authentication data in Tortoise, 1.4.3 does recreate both
...\auth\svn.ssl.server and ...\auth\svn.simple. It asks me if I want to
accept the server certificate, and then writes the server certificate to
...\auth\svn.ssl.server. Tortoise 1.4.3 does however *NOT* ask me for a
user name and password. In Apace's access.log, I see that Tortoise is still
trying to authenticate as MYDOMAIN\myusername, but now the domain name is
now in upper case characters. Where is this domain name and user name

Any ideas to how I can get Tortoise 1.4.3 to work on my computer?

If I uninstall 1.4.3, and reinstall 1.3.5, everything work again.

Logs of 1.3.5 and 1.4.3 are attached.
