Ah. Thanks for the clarification.

There is however still a number (?..) of cases where users see the
HTTP errors with no nice message inside.

I can reproduce rather quickly myself by entering for example:
http://good_server/good_repo/non_existing_babble_path_ahuhsuifas in
TSVN and expanding the folder view.

I see that others have experienced similar things, a Google of the
tsvn list shows 111 hits on "request failed". The numbers for
svn-users is a bit higher at 3.530 hits. Not sure my search terms are
anywhere near accurate, but I'm quite sure that users are actually
seeing this c... instead of meaningful error messages on a somewhat
regular basis :-).
