If no authentication dialog pops up, the server doesn't ask for one.

Maybe it's not the server but a proxy which doesn't allow DAV requests.
Try using https instead of http so proxies can't interfere anymore.

Nope, TSVN does not provide the means to specify username/password. It
relies on the server asking for it.
