If they both are located in the same repository, then it's possible. If
they're from different repositories, then it's not possible.

What version of TSVN are you using? This works for me !?!

You have to understand that update and commit are two completely
different commands. What works with update doesn't necessarily work with
commit. Update's are not atomic (don't have to be), but commits _must_
be atomic. So updating several items can be done even if they're not
related at all, but committing can only work if they're from the same
