However, when using an URL starting with svn:// (instead of http or https) I cannot contact the server. A wireshark trace shows that the client is trying to access the server directly instead of using the proxy settings, which is obviously forbidden.

Your proxy is an *http* proxy, not a generic proxy. I think only HTTP
proxies can be used with Subversion, using the HTTP protocol to access
the server.

The FAQ implies this via the explanation and example, but doesn't
explicitly "this applies to HTTP access only."
