This should only happen if your WC lives on the Linux box and you
access it using TSVN, presumably via Samba. Sharing WCs between
developers and OSes is unsupported and can cause a number of problems,
the one you're experiencing being the least of it.

If at all possible, maintain a WC and development environment on your
local workstation, and then have a separate WC on the Linux server for
compiling/testing/whatever you have to do there, using the repository
as the middleman in moving the files out to the Linux server.
