I would first triple check that you are entering the right URL. Other than
that, I would guess this is a bug in Subversion 1.8. It uses a new library
for HTTP communication and there have been a lot of bugs surfacing due to
less common configurations such as proxy servers that advertise support for
HTTP/1.1 but then do not fully support it. The old library apparently new
how to deal with those issues better. Many of the known bugs were fixed in
SVN 1.8.1, but I have not seen this on the mailing list.

I can say that it is not a general problem with an older server. Subclipse
is hosted on a SVN 1.6 server and we are able to checkout and use it OK.

It would be great to have you gather more information that could be
reported on users_at_subversion.apache.org so that they could fix the problem.
 Failing that, I would say to just uinstall this Subclipse version and
install the latest Subclipse 1.8.x version instead of 1.10.x and you should
be all set.
