Short answer:

svn rm svn+ssh://ksi/var/svn/testowy2/link

Then try to update and/or check out new working copies.

Long answer:

It looks like you corrupted the contents of the repository's 'link'
from from the Windows system, but I can't find a place in your
reproduction recipe that would do it. Could you produce an actual
script of the commands used on both systems?
