 From ChangeLog-0.7.8:

2008-03-20  Brian Warner  <warner at lothar.com>

   * buildbot/slave/commands.py (SVN.doVCFull): merge Dustin's patch:
   add --no-auth-cache option to svn invocations to avoid caching
   buildbot's credentials. This also helps when users run a
   buildslave from their personal account, to keep the buildslave
   from clobbering their manually-provided svn password. Closes #188.
   (SVN.doVCUpdate): do it for 'svn update' too.
