All Subversion clients accessing the same working copy must be of the
same svn lib version (e.g., all from 1.5.x or 1.6.x). There's no way
around that.

But: never, ever use the cygwin svn client with any other native Windows
client on the same working copy!
Cygwin emulates Linux, and working copies must not be shared between
different OSes.
