The default for the svn command line client is to always store the auth.
Unless you either pass "--no-auth-cache" on the command line, or you
have disabled auth caching in the subversion config file
(%appdata%\Subversion\config).
Please check that file: if you have the line
# store-passwords = no
# store-auth-creds = no
set there without the '#' in front, then auth caching is disabled.

if you have neither of this, then you should report this on the svn
users list: then it's clear that the svn lib does not store this kind of
auth, even though it should.
