Well it is a Windows-specific general Subversion problem ;-) Actually,
any OS which is not case sensitive, so it would apply to Mac OS-X as
well, I think. Either way, it is not a TSVN problem, because TSVN uses
only the SVN libraries (as does the command line client) to access the
working copy. Your best bet is to ask on the Subversion users list.
