For SSH connections, the authentication can not be stored by the client
- it never even sees the request for it.
The authentication is handled solely by your SSH client.

So it's not really an issue of TSVN you're dealing with here but with
your SSH client tools, e.g. pageant.
You have to find help from people who know about those tools.
