Clearing Authentication Data

From: Robert Smith <rbrtsmith_at_gmail.com>

I've run into a scenario that I can't seem to work through.

I cannot seem to be able to fully clear the authentication data
through any means I have found.

This scenario began when I swapped out a build user login that I use
for my CruiseControl.NET automation, I have given this domain account
local admin permissions on the build server, and have added as the
CruiseControl service account.

I clicked on the clear button for the TortoiseSVN Authentication Data
in Settings/Saved Data and the button grays out.

Now when I do an update I would normally expect to be prompted to
input new credentials. I am not being prompted; it simply uses the
credentials that I'm logged into the server with and happily does the
update (or any other TSVN action I've tried).

After Googling, I found that if you delete the C:\<Documents and
Settings>\<username>\Application Data\Subversion\auth folder, it
should force the clearing of credentials for each user. I did this
action on each user that had a Subversion folder. This did not clear
the authentication data.

I have also tried rebooting, uninstalling, rebooting, reinstalling,
rebooting, with TortoiseSVN versions 1.3.3, 1.4.5, 1.4.8, and 1.5.0,
all with the same negative result.

I have logged in with a different user account and find that the clear
button is grayed out, but again, I can use TortoiseSVN with some sort
of magically cached credentials for the account that I'm logged into
the server with.

In this instance, the TortoiseSVN client is installed on Windows
Server 2003. The SVN server is 1.3.1. As stated, I have tried multiple
client versions.

Any constructive ideas would be welcome.
