First, make sure the user GUEST is not active or does even exist on the
server. If that user exists, the authentication is always tried first
with that user and when that fails the real user is tried (the auth is
always tried first with the user that has the least privileges and then
tried with higher privileged users).

If that doesn't help, you can try editing the servers file (settings
dialog, network, click the edit button).
There you can configure the networking options of svn clients.
I think the 'http-timeout' option which is set to 60 seconds by default
might help.
