Can you switch to svn+ssh? That would separate the user authentication
for Subversion from the credentials the proxy requires, and it avoids
the old "passwords stored in clear text" problem for Subversion
clients on UNIX and Linux.
Also, definitely talk with your proxy administrator. They may already
have a solution, or plans to alter the proxy, and it really helps them
if they know there is an existing problem for legitimate users.
