Hi Bob,

The file handling is done by the subversion libraries, not TSVN
itself. When using cygwin, you should also be using a cygwin
subversion client. Mixing a native windows client (TSVN) with cygwin
can give you exactly the issue you are reporting.

Looks like files are being created with a 'rwx------' permission
instead of 'rwxr--r--'. In unix you control this with the UMASK
environment variable. I have no experience with cygwin, so I don't
know if there is such a thing as a umask equivalent available. But if
there is, you should make sure that it is set to default to group and
world readable
