I have had a recent thread about such a problem (stretching back over the last year):-


My problem seems to be related to specific characters in the password being mangled by subversion when being passed to the server that the browser manages to pass fine. So far I have positively identified the `` character as an issue. Could this be your problem? Can you change your password to something as ASCII as possible and try again?

Hope this helps,
