Hmmm, wanna try the following quick test? This is the method I
usually use to make sure svn still parses its proxies file correctly
after a config code change...

   1. Tweak <CSIDL_APPDATA>\Subversion\proxies to have incorrect
      syntax, like a key/val pair without a corresponding section
      name. Uncommenting the "group1" line should do it:

        # [groups]
        group1 = *.collab.net
        # othergroup = repository.blarggitywhoomph.com

   2. Undo the above change, then try the recipe with
      <CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA>\Subversion\proxies this time.

   3. If you want, try a different kind of error in both files:
      use correct syntax, but offering a non-existent proxy server, so
      svn actually tries to contact it and fails.

   4. Try step 3, but using different non-existent proxy servers, and
      making sure that svn fails trying to contact the one in the
      user-specific proxies file, instead of the system one (since
      former should override latter).

   5. Anything else you can think of :-)

Just doing steps 1 and 2 is enough, really, it all depends on how much
time you have. If it all works as expected, then we can close issue

I'm sorry I can't test this myself right now, but if I tried to
download and install the latest platform SDK on Mike's box here, I'd
probably botch it and he'd beat me up. He does that a lot.
