This is almost certainly the result of an http proxy or firewall between 
you and the server refusing to accept the valid (according to WebDAV) HTTP 
method REPORT. I consider such devices broken, but they are all to common.

One solution to this is to use https instead of http. However, our Trac 
setup is currently configured to only allow authenticated access via https. 
I will try and get that fixed but it may take a while. I will post back 
here when that has been done.

Alternatively see if you can talk to your network admin and have them fix 
the 'broken' proxy/firewall.
