I don't think this is a problem that Subversion can fix for you. Did you
report the problem at the tsocks project?

tsocks works by replacing some standard socket functions with its own
implementation, which then magically adds socks supports. Subversion
switched to using the serf library in 1.8 and I would guess that library
uses functions not mapped by tsocks. (Guess: poll support)

The only thing I could offer is that we open a feature request to directly
support socks servers, without such a library. But as this is an open source
project and the number of requests for this feature is (up until now) rather
low I don't expect any of the core committers to spend much time on it.

Isn't there a http/https proxy that you can use with Subversion. We do have
standard support for those.
