SVN client 1.8.x: unable to checkout public repositories when behind a web proxy

Hello all,

I have come across the following situation:

- With SVN client 1.8.x (specifically Tortoise 1.8.4), I'm not able to checkout public repositories when behind a (company) web proxy. You can try as an example to checkout from http://net-orcades-spring.googlecode.com/svn/trunk.

- It works fine with SVN client 1.7.14.

- If I try from home where I have direct access to Internet (i.e. no proxy), it works fine both ways (i.e. with SVN client 1.7.14 and with SVN client 1.8.4).

- I am aware of some regressions introduced in 1.8.x (specifically in 1.8.0 and supposed to be fixed in 1.8.1) when switching from neon to serf but I am not sure if my problem is related to that.

- I am not sure what SVN server version is used at googlecode, but according to their FAQ it is 1.6.x. I am mentioning this in case it matters.

- Some reference I found in the Internet:

o https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/tortoisesvn/3kJ-ybLF80A

o http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4416

Do you think this is a bug?
Should I add it in the SVN bug tracking tool?

Let me know if you need additional information.

Thanks,
Ioannis
