I ran into that last week. My solution was simply to change my username
so it was the same on each box (handy and overdue in any case).

However, I've since read that you can set the SVN_SSH variable to
include the ssh parameters you want to use for the connection, ie:

    $ export SVN_SSH="ssh -l other_login"

I believe you can set that in your ~/.subversion/config file as well,
though I haven't tried it:

    # ./subversion/config
    ssh = ssh -l other_login

They are also planning to add "relative externals URLs" in a subsequent
release (1.2, I hope?) which should allow your "externals" definitions
to simply "inherit" the URL (including username, one would assume) of
the parent directory.

Hope this helps (and is accurate),
