Is your proxy configured to pass the necessary DAV requests through?
See this item from


   How do I access a repository through a proxy?

   First, edit your ~/.subversion/proxies configuration file to
   indicate which proxy to use. There are comments in the file
   explaining how to do this. If you don't have that file, get the
   latest Subversion client and run any command; this will cause the
   configuration directory and template files to be created.

   Next, you need to make sure the proxy server itself supports all
   the HTTP methods Subversion uses. Some proxy servers do not support
   these methods by default: PROPFIND, REPORT, MERGE, MKACTIVITY,
   CHECKOUT. In general, solving this depends on the particular proxy
   software. For Squid, the config option is

      # TAG: extension_methods
      # Squid only knows about standardized HTTP request methods.
      # You can add up to 20 additional "extension" methods here.
      # none

   <Squid 2.4 and later already knows about PROPFIND.>

I see you're not running Squid, so can't say what the proper
incantations for your particular proxy might be...
