Do you know what kind of authentication mechanism the repository is
trying to use?

There have been some issues with 1.8 with certain kinds of
authentication (e.g., NTLM) due to the switch to serf as the HTTP library.

I suspect this is an upstream problem and not a Cygwin-specific problem.
Can you try this with a native Windows Subversion installation?
