Unfortunately, no. TSVN 1.4.0 has SSPI authentication enabled. (as does
the official Subversion command line client since its version 1.3.0).
And with SSPI enabled, Subversion (actually, the neon library) first
tries authenticating with the currently logged on user. In your case,
that authentication is successful, but then the authorization fails
because the user Administrator doesn't have the rights to access the

They're currently working on that issue over at the Subversion project,
but this requires using neon 0.26 instead of 0.25, and a new API. So I
don't think you will see a fix for this before version 1.5 comes out.
