Yes, you're mixing the Cygwin and native client working on the same WC.
That's the problem.

Ah, but both TortoiseSVN and the command-line client are native
binaries! Cygwin versions are not.

The catch is that Cygwin tries to emulate a unix-like environment, so
the cygwin implementation of SVN behaves as if it were on a Unix box --
and the differences between the behaviour of a unix and native windows
client are significant enough to cause problems.
