Can't save two authentications?

I am using Syncro SVN 6 on Windows 7 64Bit.

I have two repositories in my list:

where user1 and user2 are separate folders on the SVN server, corresponding to the user names.

It works perfectly fine if I authenticate (and save) my login for user1, but if I try to browse user2's repo, it tries to login using user1's authentication instead of asking for a new userid/password. If I reset authentication, I can login to user2's repo no problem, so its not the server.

Is this a limitation in syncro svn? Due to both repos having the same base URL?

Syncro SVN Client stores authentication at repository level, so once a user authenticated in a repository, the same authentication information will be used further. Accessing a repository child path with different credentials than the ones used for the parent path is not supported.

We have a set of improvements to be made on the repository authentication side, so I will add your message to them and we will see what can be done. Most probably, this will be done for one of the Syncro SVN Client 7.x versions.
