Thanks. I didn't know that you could use svnadmin to change the log.
This does not require a commit, does it?

However, this is more a workaround that a solution. I still don't
understand why one user has stored the password and another hasn't (the
config files in the .subversion diretory are the same). I would very
much like to understand the problem and fix it rather than put a
workaround in place. Especially because the exact same procedure (to
change the log message) works perfectly fine in the production
repository.

The problem is not that the normal hooks are called. So bypassing them
wouldn't make any difference. However, as I said, I didn't know you
could use svnadmin and that this does not require a commit.
