You're comparing things which don't belong together. You can't compare
a unix CL client with TSVN. If you want to compare, compare the CL
client on unix with the windows CL client. Then you would see that the
CL client on Windows does the same as TSVN.
So this issue can't be solved by TSVN, you have to report that on the
Subversion mailing list.

And btw: you should *not* share a working copy between unix/linux and
Windows OS! Never!
You will get a completely screwed up working copy pretty soon. Because
on Linux, the svn:eol-style=native means LF, on windows that means
CRLF. And that's just the most obvious problem you will see.
