Yes, perfectly.
I really should get some sleep, otherwise I will miss important
information in mails again :)

In that case, there's not much he can do. If the server is set up to
authenticate via SSPI, then Subversion will always try with that. In
1.3.x, we've disabled SSPI authentication in the neon library, but we
activated it in 1.4.x.

Only in version 1.5.x, Subversion can fall back to basic authentication
(or only use basic authentication) if it's configured in the servers
file in %APPDATA%\Subversion. That change got committed just recently to
the Subversion trunk.
