Well, to be practical for Paul Ossenbruggen, this is a real world
solution, that works NOW: Use ssh to access the repository instead of
http. svn co svn+ssh://server/repos/path/

But first get ssh-agent setup properly (which also means that you can
ssh to machines without supplying a password - very cool! Test ssh
without svn first to see its working. I use openssh ; cygwin's on
windows) http://www.google.com/q=ssh-agent+howto

I've been using that since svn 0.26 and its flawless. It's passwordless
and there is no auth caching. But you'll need an sshd on the server.
Don't know about that if the server is running MS windows.
