well, tortoisesvn is still using the same underlying subversion
libraries, so it is likely to run into the same issues as the command
line client. i'm not sure precisely what commands would cause the
problems, but running svnserve on win32 is still something that very few
people have even tried, so it's likely you'll run into problems.
