Eclipse URL access forbidden for unknown reason

I have installed Geppetto (=Eclipse) and connected to a different SVN repository. Stupidly, both Eclipse installations shared the same cached password, so my other repository started failing with "Eclipse URL access forbidden for unknown reason"

where is eclipse keeping SVN password?

in this folder C:\Users\[username]\AppData\Roaming\Subversion\auth\svn.simple where will be a single file with a funny name.

just rename that file adding ORI at the end, restart Eclipse and reenter the "right" password.

Eclipse stinks. Like a skunk.
