Or just set the option permanently in your run-time 'config' file:

store-auth-creds = no

If tortoisesvn *ever* prompted you for credentials, the svn libraries
are going to cache them in your personal auth/ area forever after.
You'll need to delete the cache. The book has a whole section (in
chapter 6) about credential caching on the client side. Read all about
