The repository allows anonymous read access, and therefore svn didn't  
really use the "preining@" at all when you did a checkout, and so  
this username wasn't saved.

It proposes your local username if nothing else is either specified  
in the command or already cached; and it only caches your credentials  
when it actually authenticates for the first time, which hadn't yet  
been needed.
