Can accept HTTPS certificate under windows

I'm trying to setup a daily script to check if anything in a working
copy has changed without being committed to the repository, and send out
an email if that's the case. I've successfully set this up on a Linux
box. I'm now trying to set it up on a Windows 2000 server.
The repository is reached over a HTTPS connection using a self signed
certificate. This was no problem for the Linux box, the first time I
connected it asked me if I trusted the certificate, and I chose to
permanantly accept it - no troubles from there.

On the Windows 2000 box though, it only gives me the option to
temporarily trust the certificate, so I can't set up the script because
it requires interaction everytime its run.
Can anyone tell me why this is. I saw some other posts saying that the
permanent option wouldn't be available if the hostname in the
certificate didn't match - but in this case it does, and even if that
was the case, why is it ok to accept it under linux, but not Windows?

(Note, the Linux box has subversion 1.0.1 installed, while the Windows
box has 1.0.2 if that makes a difference)
