I did set this up and it worked, though I don't have access to that 
system any more to see what I did.

I remember that svn cached credentials (and that there was a way to say 
"do this as a different user").  Are you using the 
https://server/svnpath as the argument for the svn command line invocation?

I'll go dig around to see what I can dredge up.
