Depends on the command you use. Since TSVN uses the Subversion library,
it's not possible that the command line client 'works' and TSVN does not
with the very same command. Best guess: you forgot some command line
switch that TSVN is always using (for example, any command that has the
-v flag, TSVN will always use that).
Also, TSVN often calls 'svn info' before the 'real' command.
And of course, the 1.5 client also uses most commands with the 'merge'
info requested too, and falls back to 'without merge info' if that fails.

Since it's your server that's consuming the memory, there's nothing we
can do in TSVN to change that.
