Thank you for your answer, Stefan.

I take your point, but the SSH communication in this case is handled by TortoisePlink. And since the behaviour changed between TSVN 1.7.7 and TSVN 1.8.8 while everything else remained unaltered, there must be some change in TSVN that causes this problem, i.e. there are more requests for connections from TSVN 1.8.8 than were with 1.7.7.

You don't have an idea what changes between these two versions might be the cause of now being more connections to the repository, do you?

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.
