I have had a recent thread about such a problem (stretching back over the last year):-

My problem seems to be related to specific characters in the password being mangled by subversion
when being passed to the server that the browser manages to pass fine.  So far I have positively
identified the `£` character as an issue.  Could this be your problem?  Can you change your
password to something as ASCII as possible and try again?

Hope this helps,
