My tentative suggestion is that you are having problems with mixed versions
of Subversion DLLs being found.
Try ensuring that you really only have a single version of Cygwin-Subversion
installed, or setting $PATH to just "/usr/bin", to test this hypothesis.

Same problem, manifesting a different error message.

A simple test case not involving SVN::Pusher:

$ perl -MSVN::Core -e'print "ok\n";'
