Intellij should respect subversion no-cache and no-saved-passwords options

Our dev team does XP and our dev workstations just have one user.  Subversion supports no cache of credentials but intellij ignores this and has the annoying habit of only prompting for credentials once, so if you don't remember to close intellij, somebody else might check in as you.

Anyone know a way to force intellij to ask for subversion credentials every time?

Don't check the "Save credentials" checkbox in the credential prompt dialog.

You can file a JIRA issue asking not to show this checkbox at all if the
no-saved-password option is specified in the SVN configuration file.

Even if you don't check the save credentials box intellij stores credentials in memory for the duration of the session.  I'd like intellij to prompt me every time I commit for my credentials.  Anyway if there is no workaround I can create a JIRA issue.  Thanks for your response.
