It seems this has something to do with TSVN having SSPI authentication
enabled. Make sure you don't have the user "GUEST" enabled, neither on
your client PC nor on the server.

Both Subclipse and the command line client don't have the automatic SSPI
authentication enabled: you have to enter username/password with them
(your windows username/password, but still, you have to enter them).
TSVN has the automatic SSPI auth enabled, which means (if everything is
set up correctly) won't ask you for username/password anymore but
authenticate automatically with your windows logon data. The problem
with that is that windows will authenticate always with the user who has
the least privileges, i.e., if you have user "GUEST" enabled, it will
authenticate as user GUEST and not user TONY. But I doubt you have given
user GUEST access to your repository - then it will of course fail.
