proxy settings in servers file

Hi there,

I'm to use subversion from behind a firewall. I have set

http-proxy-host = wwwproxy.mycompany.com
http-proxy-port = 3128
http-proxy-username = username
http-proxy-password = password

in the ~/.subversion/servers file (I use debian). Upon calling svn I got

budayg_at_collabKIT:~/svn$ svn co $smlnj/admin admin
svn: OPTIONS of
'https://smlnj-gforge.cs.uchicago.edu/svn/smlnj./admin': Could not
create SSL connection through proxy server: Could not authenticate to
proxy server: rejected Basic challenge

So I could not log in to the proxy server.

Now the problem is that subversion tries to authenticate too many
times, causing a lock-out of my internal account (call to helpdesk,
embarrassment) . Is it possible to tell subversion that it should try
only once? It would help me testing this.

I definitely gave the good password in the servers file, what could
have caused that the proxy server did not like it? It does have some
special characters, is it allowed to use apostrophes to shield it?
Better, should I? I do not try this before the above problem is solved
(svn tries too many times).

Best Wishes
