TortoiseSVN does not handle RunAs

When you start a Windows Explorer or other tools, that use explorer
views for the file system view under another account using the "RunAs"
feature, You get a lot of CPU activity from starting TSVNCache
processes, which will stop after a while, leaving you with an
explorer, which has no connection to SVN.

I stumbled upon this one, because Subversion only has a repository
based authentication cache. I really would not like to work without
that cache and so I started an explorer under another account (I
cannot switch users, because I have to use the Novell Netware Client).
Starting Windows Explorer (actually performing "RunAs" on a command
prompt and then entering "explorer /separate", because otherwise, no
new process is started) causes the TSVNCache program to be started
under the correct account when I navigate to a drive that contains
Subversion working directories, only it terminates very quickly. It
does that a few times and is dead afterwards. Everytime I navigate to
a new directory, TSVNCache is started again, only to terminate again.
I do not get any icon overlays or contect menu entries.

Having working directories for different users on the same computer
for the same repository would be very nice.

Thanks for any feedback!
