Hi Steve,

I did uninstall Cygwin's subversion otherwise the SlikSvn install would not 
take since /usr/bin is put first on the Cygwin PATH by default.

The problem with SlikSvn's svn commit in a Cygwin shell window is that when 
it asks for a password, it's for a user called 'cyg-server' instead of me 

When I then force the user to 'vajda' with --username, it still fails 
because the password input doesn't appear to be working. The process just 
waits for ever, even after I hit enter.
The password is also displayed live twice in the shell: once when entered 
(copy/paste) and once when aborted, as naked input in the shell.

Doing the same in a proper DOS shell window works fine. My username is used 
by default, the password is not echoed, is accepted upon hitting enter and 
the commit completes as expected.
