[tex-live] svn problems

    Password for 'norbert': 

1) does 
  svn list svn://preining@tug.org/texlive
ask for a password?  It shouldn't (more than once).

2) does
  svn --username preining ...

3) Auth information is stored in ~/.subversion/auth/.  Maybe if you poke
   around in those directories you can find entries for tug.org which
   explain why norbert is being tried first.  Or if you just remove them
   and try again, maybe it'll be saved properly.
   http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s02.html explains more, sort of.

I would expect that svn would of course try a saved username of preining
for a given repo before resorting to the system user name norbert, but I
do not know this for a fact.

We could just change your svn username to norbert :).
