Thanks again for the answer.

Ok, I see, and I agree to what you wrote before. However, the security of the system is not my concern right now, and I do not wish to reconfigure Subversion. I only want to move the password cache to the safe place I prepared for it.

Personally I think the security of the passwords cached by the SVN client should be separated from the security of the system. But it is just an opinion.

I see. So no easy configuration option.
OK, thanks I will find a workaround.
