SVN 1.4.3 : behaviour change when stored credential doesn't have the required rights

From: Michel Jouvin <jouvin_at_lal.in2p3.fr>

I recently upgraded from 1.2.3 to 1.4.3 (on Tru64 v5.1 and Linux RHEL 3/4,
the behaviour is the same). After this upgrade I experience problems with
stored credentials.

I had a stored credential (in .subversion/auth/svn.simple) that allowed to
write to a specific branch in a specific repository. To access (or write)
other branches or repositories, this credential had no specific rights and
thus svn client was asking me for another credential (first for a new
password with the opportunity to enter a new username if not entering a
password). With 1.4.3, this is not considered as an authentication failure
giving the right to enter a new one but leads to an access failure. I need
to put --username explicitly to workaround this new behaviour.

Is it an intended change I need to live with or is it a bug ?

Thanks in advance for any help.
