Hello Laura,

I'm a bit confused. I do not normally work on Windows, but I have tried 
TortoiseSVN. I thought it was a graphical interface to Subversion, and I 
don't see the connection to cygwin.
> Does it mean for me to upgrade cygwin client?
Upgrading cygwin is usually quite easy; just invoke setup.exe by 
clicking on the install icon on the cygwin site (or download it to you 
local machine first). I think it will upgrade all your existing 
packages, and you can also select new packages you want to have installed.
You can check which version of Subversion you are using; 'svn --version' 
from within cygwin should suffice.
If you checked out with or used TortoisSVN on your Derby repository, it 
will have been updated to 1.4.x, and then older svn clients can't use it 
So if your 'svn --version' reports a version lower than 1.4, you need to 
upgrade your cygwin installation.

Not sure if this really helped, but at least you got a few well intended 
suggestions :)
