Brian, Ryan,
Thanks for this points
I was as sudo user when manually running so the passwords were sure enough
only cached in my own home dir .subversion
I am about to test with cron [ which since it is a root cron run's as
root] again having first done a true svn connection to repo with root
user.

About the file:// url would that be a wise choice?
in this case I need to tell svn about the new URL ? I think.

This repos is never going to be checked out, it is only for recording etc
dir changes.

regards
-- Oliver
