I just finished testing svn+ssh using WinSSHD and Tunnelier (bitvise.com)
this allows you to use windows integrated authentication, which would
solve your no/bad password issue, and having to maintain and store
plaintext svn user passwords.

The 2 issues so far are (1) I haven't been able to find a way to pass
svnserve -r parameter with winsshd and (2) when using TortoiseSVN,
Tunnelier brings up a dos box, which is kinda ugly, and probably the
reason why the TortoiseSVN folks wrote TortoisePLink (for putty).

Should note that i've only tested this in a virtual network, and there
were a couple of little tricks to implement, especially if you're used
to just svn:// access...I plan to write a little howto once the above
mentioned issues are resolved.

peace
si
