you need to play by PowerBuilder's rules, I'm afraid. Trying to use
TortoiseSVN or any other "plain" Subversion client for checkin/checkout
will cause you grief.

You can still use TortoiseSVN for other tasks, like browsing logs,
tagging and branching.

The IDE supports the SCC API, and you need to use a plug-in for the IDE
that can drive Subversion via SCC. This will magically do the right
thing with objects in PBLs. Note that SCC encourages a serialized
workflow with reservation ("locking") of objects.

We evaluated PushOK's product a couple of years ago; at the time, it
proved a good fit for our customer's needs.

(Please upgrade to Subversion 1.6.15. Subversion 1.6.9 sports a number
of bugs that have been fixed since its release.)
