If the overlay changes, then that means that the "readonly" flag has
been removed. If the file is still not writable, then that would mean
some other program has the file open (virus scanner are known to behave
badly here), or that you don't have the right to write to that file
(NTFS permissions are different from the readonly flag).

Maybe it's some interference with you using the cygwin svn client
together with TSVN. If you're working on windows, you should use the
windows SVN command line client. Or only the cygwin client and no other
Subversion clients.
