How so? Aptana Studio is built on the Eclipse platform, so you should
be using Subclipse within Aptana.

Working copies never automatically sync with the repository. If you
aren't storing anything in a repository, then you aren't using
Subversion (or TSVN). Subversion is a client/server system, even when
the server is also the client.

See above. You should be able to do everything within Aptana without
using Tortoise at all.

Are you using TortoiseSVN to create a local repository, and then
accessing it from within Aptana using its Subclipse plugin? If so, you
aren't actually using TortoiseSVN for anything but creating the
initial repository. Which is the lone Subversion "server" function
built into TortoiseSVN.
