the problem solved. It all was my bad :( Although not completely.
The thing is I was trying if SVN clients are SOCKS aware (to use
dynamic port forwarding of ssh), so I've tried couple of them. It
looks like one of them (presumably SlickSVN but I am not sure)
silently imported settings from
%user%\appdata\roaming\subversion\servers file to the windows
registry. At the moment of import this file in global section had
http-proxy configured to be localhost:3000 (my port for dynamic port
forwarding) which I removed later. But nevertheless, afterwards every
windows svn client used settings from registry instead of
So at least I have not only myself to blame...
