Yes, Subversion changed their working copy format between 1.3 and 1.4,
so if you've touched your working copy with a 1.4 client (such as the
TortoiseSVN you mention) you'll have to use 1.4+ to work with it.

Here's an announcement from the cygwin project regarding an updated
package being available for cygwin, so you should be home free if you
can run the cygwin installer/updater:


More info on the svn packages available from cygwin:

On the front page they link to http://cygwin.com/setup.exe with the text
"Install or update now!", so I figure that one's what you want. I'm not
using cygwin myself, so no guarantees. But good luck. =)

My opinions may have changed, but not the fact that I am right!
