TSVN not retaining user credentials between logoff/logon

Hello TSVN folks,

We are in the process of upgrading our CITRIX servers from Windows 2003 to Windows 2008 server. On the new servers, TSVN is not saving authentication between logoff and log back on, while on our existing 2003 servers the process was working fine. Here is a description of the issue from one of our IT staff.

" I'm logged on to a server with TSVN 1.6.16 x64 installed and execute a TSVN command, in this particular case a "Show Log" via the Right-Click Shell extension, provide my username and password and check the box "Save Authentication".
While in the same session, executing the same command does use the credentials and I'm not asked to provide my credentials again.
The authentication information is stored in "%appdata%\Subversion\auth\svn.simple\<filename>" which is created after providing the username and password and checking the box "Save Authentication". This information is stored in a redirected folder of a users profile which points to a network location.
Logging of from the server followed by a subsequent login and executing the same command as above does result in the strange behavior that I have to provide my username and password again despite the fact, that the authentication file is existing and that subversion is trying to access or really accessing it (tested with procmon). "

Operating System: Windows Server 2008 R2 x64
TSVN Version: 1.6.16 x64
Backend Subversion Server: CollabNetSubversion-server-1.6.6-1

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
