Not really. Even the command line client has the same problem. But you
have to use full paths, not relative paths.
svn ci X:\ -m""
instead of
cd X:\
svn ci -m ""

And in most situations, you have to provide multiple paths as TSVN does:
svn ci X:\folder1 X:\folder1 -m ""

and then you'll get the same problems.
this issue is fixed for the upcoming 1.7.0, but not fixed for the 1.6.x
branch since the fix is part of the rewrite due to wc-ng.
