TortoiseSVN asks for username/password automatically if the server
requires it. If that authentication is saved, it will use this for all
future authentication requests from the server.

If you want to automate commits, please use the command line client -
there you can pass username/password on the command line.

However, if your server does not ask for authentication and that's why
you don't get a username shown in the log, then I strongly suggest that
you reconfigure your server.
