Stefan, the matter is that I checked it before I posted it.

I used Cygwin svn command-line client v1.6.4, and both commits
from W:\ and from C:\work do work fine.

However, for TortoiseSVN just one commit works - from C:\work
If I try to commit from W:\, it fails with error "'\' is not a working

And I have no idea what could be the reason for that.
If you have some, please let me know.
