The only user who has not even *read* access to *some* HKLM keys in the
registry is the 'guest' user. Every normal user has read access to HKLM
(no write access, but read access).
If your user doesn't have read access to those, you've configured your
account wrong.
Yes, read access is required, not just for TSVN but all applications
must have read access there to work properly. Heck, even most locale
settings are stored in HKLM - an application with no read access to
those simply can't work properly.
