1. Sending a mail three times (2 times to dev, once to users) won't help
you at all. It just makes people angry, and angry people tend to not
answer such mails at all. If you can't wait until your mail gets
moderated through, take the time to subscribe.
2. Where's the part of TSVN in your problem? You're using Linux, cygwin.
Both have absolutely nothing to do with TSVN. As you said, you can
checkout with TSVN if you specify the user who created the repository.
So it's definitely not a TSVN issue.

Now, read the two points above again. And now read point 2 again.
There's a hint for you in there....

Still not clear what you're doing wrong? Ok, read it again!

Ok, I'll help you a little bit: it works if you check out with the user
who created the repository, but it fails with other users.
So: make sure that the repository files are readable and writable by all
users who you want to give access to the repository!
