This isn't an "inability" of TSVN - it's Subversion itself. And it's
meant as protection against your data getting hosed by an accidental
checkout. On the command-line, I think you can use --force to bypass

How are you setting up new PCs? If it's from a standard image, why not
do the installations, do the current jockeying of the .svn
directories, then distribute that image? Then you'll just need to do
an Update after loading the image onto a PC, instead of a checkout.
