Error 10179 / SVN loses authentication during session

We use SVN with a small team (3 developers), and we've been experiencing some strange issues lately. We use tortoiseSVN to connect to out repository from Windows explorer, and some of the time some of our actions get rejected, asking us to log in again. As I also received an error, perhaps these two are related. (see below for full error copy)

When actually using the provided login dialog, we never actually get access. (even checking the remember me checkbox does not solve it.) All three of our users have this issue, but not all of the time.

For example, this morning I was allowed to update to the latest versions, and perform some searches through the logs (code review). After a couple of files I suddenly got the login dialog, after which the error popped up.

Some of the time, I've managed to actually continue my work by resetting my password in Assembla (through the website). But that does not work consistently.

Attempts made to solve it on our end:

- Install the latest version of SVN/Tortoise

- Removing the authentication files (so Tortoise could regenerate them)

What can we do to fix this?

Kind regards,

Robin Oudhuis
