You don't tell here if it works if you try the SVN client or Subclipse
on *windows* or on your linux box. If on linux, then please try the SVN
client on windows too.

There's also a FAQ entry about 301 errors:
but judging from your posts to the subversion users list I assume you've
already checked that one.

The revision graph in 1.3.x only shows copies, no 'normal' commits. And
it has a bug too which sometimes doesn't even show copies. It's fixed in

According to our docs:
you should try
svn merge --force [--dry-run]

And please do that on the same windows box you use TSVN on. Otherwise
the test isn't really accurate.

I somehow doubt that it's a TSVN problem, because TSVN uses the
Subversion library to do the merge. So you should get the same errors
with the SVN client on windows as you do with TSVN.
