Current stable release is 1.1.1 - please update!

If you would use a current release, you could see an error message shown
instead of the filelist.

I guess your proxy/firewall is blocking DAV requests. Subversion uses
DAV requests to access a repository over http. The only thing you can do
without DAV is listing the files from the HEAD revision in your
webbrowser, but nothing more - no updates, checkouts, ...

Ok, don't mix SSH with http. If you're using http, then that means your
repository is served by mod_dav_svn and apache. SSH is for svnserve,
which you can access via svn+ssh://.
