Suggestions regarding username usage

When I do a svn update it asks me for my username. When I type in, it
masks the input with *'s. The problem with this is that I havn't
really seen any system to this before. So I assumed I was typing in my
password. Which comes in the second dialog. So I went:

type in username: <types in pass>
type in pass: <types in pass>
do this for a couple of times with diferent passwords until you give
up:
doesn't work, type in pass: <types in pass>

I would really like if the username was NOT masked.

Furthermore svn log is completely useless without a password manager.
It will ask for my password for each and every revision. Why can't
tortoise just store the pass in a hashed for or something for the
duration of the svn log? Furthermore it's quite hard to make it stop,
since it insists on getting the password for every single revision.
You can't cancel it easily, you have to kill it the hard way :(
