Thanks for the quick response.
I am confused, because the behaviour I'm experiencing is that same as that that was described in the other post. The operation works as expected with TortoiseSVN 1.6.10, but not with 1.6.11 or 1.6.12.
I'll try to elaborate on my use case.
A windows user exists with an account in my active directory (MyActiveDirectoryDomain\UserA)
MyActiveDirectoryDomain\UserA is given permission to a repository on our Visual SVN Server. This Visual SVN server has integrated security and basic window authentication enabled.
If the user logs into windows with MyActiveDirectoryDomain\UserA they can successfully access the repo without being prompted for credentials (using integrated security)
If the user has a machine that's not registered on MyActiveDirectoryDomain they can't use integrated security. When they login to this machine they logon with a local machine account (MyLocalMachine\UserALocal).
When the user tries to access a repo from this machine with TortoiseSVN 1.6.10 the initial authentication request will fail (401), and the TortoiseSVN presents the user with a credentials dialog, because basic authentication is enabled. The user enters their MyActiveDirectoryDomain\UserA credentials and they can successfully authenticate and begin using the repo.
When the user tries to access a repo from this machine with TortoiseSVN 1.6.12 the initial authentication request will fail (401), but TortoiseSVN will not present an authentication dialog even though basic authentication is enabled.
If this issue is not the same as the other case, then why does this difference in behaviour exist between versions?
