Since this is a sourceforge project, why did you edit the error message?
I guess since this is an open source project, you just could have
provided the original error message so we know with which project you
have problems and try ourselves.

That means it's not a problem with TSVN. Even your browser shows that
error, so it's definitely a problem with either the server, the project
or your network settings.

Where did you read that TSVN has problems when connecting through a
proxy? That's just not true. All you have to do is properly configure
the proxy settings (in the TSVN settings dialog, network page).
There are however problems with proxy servers: some of them don't allow
PROPFIND requests (they're not used for 'normal' webbrowsing, so some
proxies just block them). But that's a problem of those proxies, not TSVN.
