Re: Browser does not cache credentials

I still don't have a solution for this.
Further research showed that this does not happen when using Konqueror nor with
Internet Explorer, only when using Firefox (both on Linux and on Windows).

The problematic behavior disappears if I comment out the AuthzSVNAccessFile
entry from httpd.conf

So it seems like some bug in Firefox but if anyone encountered similar situation
I'd appreciate to hear about that.
