Not true. I think you're thinking about encrypted partitions. The whole file
is not encrypted, just the password part. If you aren't seeing it, then try
removing %APPDATA%\Subversion\auth. IIRC, Subversion will not automatically
go back and encrypt the passwords after an upgrade. It will continue using
what was there already. Note that you will have to enter your passwords
again the first time you connect to a repository.
