I feel your pain :)

NTLMAPS works for me here at work. If you're using Debian and derivatives,
run 'sudo dpkg-reconfigure ntlmaps' and enter in all the other information
(like DOMAIN) they don't ask you in the beginning.
Or, just edit the server.conf file. I needed to set domain, username,
password, upstream proxy and port. This then works connecting locally to
port 5865 without authentication.

SVN+SSH should work fine, SVN+HTTP on the other hand is a little more
tricky. You need to edit your .svn/servers config and tell it to use
localhost:5865, etc.
