You can't. SVN requires an entire folder check-out. You can extract a
single copy from the repository (use the repository browser to select
the file and revision you want to copy), but commiting that copy after
modifications cannot be done.

By the way, 1.4.0. is a rather old version of TSVN. There have been
big changes to TSVN and the SVN libraries it is built upon since
1.4.0. I suggest you think about upgrading. Version 1.5.0 will be
available shortly, 1.4.8 is the current version.

With the new version 1.5.0 you will be able to check out a single
folder (without any subfolders), but single file check outs are still
not possible AFAIK.
