Happily, I've been recently relieved of this particular pain. Instead
I've got new pain such as a proxy that returns 200 OK and an error page
instead of HTTP error codes that my tools can actually detect. Grr.

NTLMAPS doesn't properly support the DAV methods used by SVN without
patching. It strips the request body on the NTLM challenge responses to
save bandwidth, but it sends a Content-Length header indicating a body
will follow.

If you know Python, the fix is pretty simple. I've been remiss and
failed to submit my patch to the SourceForge project. Probably wouldn't
do much good, it looks like development has stagnated.
