I would check permissions. The user used for Windows is probably not
the one used on Linux.

Also perhaps you should try to reproduce this with the Subversion
command line client to exclude that this is a TortoiseSVN-specific
problem.

Otherwise I would suggest to use svnserve locally in the OS where you
have the repository and update/commit per svn:// in a native
filesystem on the OS you want to use.

Have a nice day!
