Has anyone found a way to reset saved passwords across multiple eclipse workspaces?

It's password changing day again.  When I change my jazz.net password I have to change all my saved passwords in a number of eclipse workspaces. I save the passwords but do not set the automatically log in option.
 If I miss one of my workspaces  then  attempt to log in a couple days later I get locked out of jazz.net for 2 hours.
Anyone know of a way to delete all the saved passwords across all my workspaces, or even what file the password is in so that I can delete them all?

I'm on Windows but assume it would be similar enough on Unix for me to figure it out.

Karl,

I am using various RTC clients and versions of it in parallel. I think the password is stored per workspace. You can delete these passwords in Window>preferences>general>Security>Storage

I don't store the password for Jazz.net for that very reason.

hi Karl,

the lock out is only 1 hour for me!! looks like Jazz.net is being more generous to you.. you have have a extended coffee break ;) 

the closest i could get was :com.ibm.team.process.rcp.ui.prefs
    C:\Dinesh\EclipseWS\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\.settings\com.ibm.team.process.rcp.ui.prefs

which seems to remember certain things but I dont seem to find an explicit entry for the actual password... hope you find the real property in there which has the culprit :)
