Can't save svn+ssh authentication, and other prompt grief

I've been using TortoiseSVN for a long time now, and recently updated
to "TortoiseSVN 1.5.6, Build 14908".

When I try to connect to my friend's svn repository (svn+ssh), I can
authenticate just fine. However, it gives me no option to save
authentication. I actually get two prompts; one for username, then
another for password. If I connect to a plain old svn repository, it
says "<servername> Requests a username and password", and gives me a
checkbox to save authentication. I know I USED to be able to save
authentication for his server, because we worked on a project together
in the past. Am I doing something wrong, or what?

As a side note, it really bothers me that the svn+ssh prompts take
"Cancel" to mean "use blank". If you press cancel at the username
prompt, you are now STUCK. It will repeatedly prompt for a password
and try to connect with a blank username no matter how many times I
try to cancel at the password prompt. My friend's server doesn't have
a password lockout, so it just keeps asking and asking. I don't think
being locked out of the server would be good either. All I can do is
close the TortoiseProc and TortoisePlink with the task manager.

What are your thoughts?
