I received an email yesterday from the Kaspersky support team
acknowledging the defect. Here's the message in case you're interested:
--- Begin message ---
06.09.2006, 12:06 - :
We have consulted with the developer, this is known problem of our product. This is due to the fact that HTTP analize module doesn't surrort WebDav on RFC standart (which is in current use by subversion)
It'll be fixed in the next release, now the only way to work correctly is to add the javaw.exe to the trusted zone.

I'm glad to learn that they're working on a fix.
