You have a stupid program installed which put the libeay32.dll and
ssleay32.dll into either the windows or system32 folder. I say "stupid
program" because that's something a program *must not* do, otherwise it
either breaks itself or other programs (like TSVN in your case).
The reason is that now, TSVN is forced by windows to use the OpenSSL
dll's which that program installed in the windows/system32 folder
instead of the one in the TSVN bin folder (your using either XP-SP2 with
a manually edited registry setting or Win2003).

You can try a nightly build (available from our download page). Use the
one from trunk (not the 1.3.x one). That build is now linked statically
against OpenSSL so such stupid programs won't break TSVN anymore.
