We had the same problem here.  It was fixed (for Squid) by following
these instructions (off the web somewhere):

Next, you need to make sure the proxy server itself supports all the HTTP methods Subversion uses. Some proxy servers do not
+support these methods by default: PROPFIND, REPORT, MERGE, MKACTIVITY, CHECKOUT. In general, solving this depends on the
+particular proxy software. For Squid, the config option is

   #  TAG: extension_methods
   #       Squid only knows about standardized HTTP request methods.
   #       You can add up to 20 additional "extension" methods here.
   # none

(Squid 2.4 and later already knows about PROPFIND.)
