Correct. Even if the icon overlay was wrong, the commit dialog will
only show items that really can be committed.

That is correct. The error is happening in the repository, not the working copy.

You can download the command line client from subversion.tigris.org on
the downloads page. You should find there an installer (.exe) for
Windows - version 1.4.3 is the latest.

Open a command window and type:
svn commit -m "Log message goes here" /path/to/wc

/path/to/wc can be your entire working copy, or it could be a single
file. Do whatever you were doing in TSVN to get the error.

You will almost certainly get the same error message as you got in
TSVN, so copy and paste that into an email to the svn users list.
