They always tell that, but I just don't buy it anymore :)

Which indicates that your proxy server isn't configured properly until
you do it with IE.

* check your proxy settings in IE. Use the same in TSVN (settings dialog)

You're using squid?
Your problem most likely is that your proxy server requires NTLM
authentication, but the one provided by Subversion isn't allowed to go
through. Subversion unfortunately doesn't ask for a different
username/password if the NTLM auth fails (it will in 1.5, but doesn't
in 1.4 or earlier). If you enable the connections with IE (which I
guess asks you first for username/password), then Subversion works
because your proxy was told to allow those connections from your pc.
