* what version of TSVN are you using?
* why is adding the cert to the windows cert store a problem? You said
that works, so why don't you just do that?
* SVN on Windows uses the windows cert store (Cygwin does not)
* using the cygwin svn client on Windows is _not_ recommended - just
search this mailing list archive to find out why
