You'll probably have the same problem with a web browser having a
svn client extension. With a proxy server that filters some method,
you can't access all the web, and changing the client won't solve
your problem. If you control the web server itself, perhaps you can
try something like SSH over HTTP (if CONNECT is allowed).

It's interesting to note that I tried TortoiseSVN which runs on
Windows and worked without a breeze. This leads me to think that the
web server (which I dodn't control) does accept svn requests.
The company network is run by Windows.
