When you say the command line version of SVN I think you mean the
cygwin version. You cannot use a windows client on a cygwin working
copy because the two are not compatible. Some things may work, others
will not. Have you tried the same test with the windows command line
client?

Another potential problem is the NOD32 virus scanner. Virus scanners
are notorious for breaking SVN operations for GUI clients.
