Default layman: could not connect to server


I've got a problem concerning syncing of some overlays with layman:

"layman -s vmware"

* Running command "/usr/bin/svn up "/usr/local/portage/layman/vmware""...

svn: OPTIONS of 'http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/vmware/trunk': could not connect to server (http://overlays.gentoo.org)


* Errors:

* ------


* Failed to sync overlay "vmware".

* Error was: Syncing overlay "vmware" returned status 256!

But pointing firefox to http://overlays.gentoo.org/svn/proj/vmware/trunk lists the directory.

Same problem arose by syncing the sabayon overlay.

Courageously removing this overlay with " layman -d sabayon" now I'm unable to add it again! Same error as mentioned before.

Paradoxically syncing works with pro-audio overlay.

All overlays use subversion. Re-emerging subversion doesn't change anything.

I'm on ~amd64




Googling around didn't help.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
