The error message comes from the Subversion library, not TSVN.
But "Attempted to get checksum of a *non*-file node" indicates that you
tried to execute a command on a folder where a file was expected.
Did you perhaps set one URL pointing to a folder and the other to a file
when you tried merging?

I assume that merge command with the CL client works?

If you do that with TSVN, you have to:
- enter svn://repos/branches/a in the "From: (start URL and revision of
the range to merge)" box. Revision 15 in the edit box just below that.
- enter svn://repos/trunk in the "To: (end URL and revision of the range
to merge)" box. To activate that box, uncheck "Use From: URL" first.
Then enter 16 in the Revision box just below that.

The 0kb tmp file is created and handled by the Subversion library. If
it's left behind, then something is wrong. Maybe you have a virus
scanner running which locks every newly created file? Some of them do
that and so prevent the app that created those files from using them
again! Configure your virus scanner to exclude your working copies from
