A 1.8 client should have no problem communicating with any svn 1.x
server, so if that doesn't hold anymore for a 1.2 server then that's a
bug we want to fix.

For this part of your issue, I'm interested in seeing a network trace
(wireshark, fiddler) between your client and server. If that's
possible for you, you can send them privately. Filter out any
unrelated traffic and basic/digest authentication headers if possible.
