Hi Stefan,

> * what version of TSVN are you using?

I'm currently using TortoiseSVN 1.7.3, Build 22386 - 64 Bit , 2011/12/16 15:01:39 but I was seeing the issue with 1.7.2 also.

There is no way to password protect a certificate in the Windows cert store, and my department recommend not storing developer certificates there.

> * SVN on Windows uses the windows cert store (Cygwin does not)

I couldn't find anything in the documentation that actually states this - also it doesn't seem to exclusively use the Windows cert store - if I haven't also provided a copy of the cert and private key in a file and linked it in the servers configuration file, it doesn't seem to work - it seems to need both for some reason?

I searched the mailing list and only found reference to it being a bad idea to share working copies between Cygwin and TortoiseSVN - I have no intention of doing that! I was merely checking that my environment and certificate do work correctly using a different svn client, which they do - so the problem lies within TortoiseSVN.
