Unfortunately, the most recent version of TSVN that I can use is 1.6.16, Build 21511 - 64 Bit, 2011/06/01 19:00:35. The reason is that my organization requires that TSVN use Kerberos to authenticate with its servers, and the latest TSVN 1.7 does not support it.

the neon lib has problems with GSSAPI, but serf should work.
TSVN is linked with both of those DAV libraries, you can configure which
one to use here:
Settings dialog->Network->Subversion server file->Edit

at the bottom of that file, find
[global]
http-library = neon

and change that (or add it if it's missing) to
http-library = serf

then save the file.

now TSVN (and all other svn clients) will use the serf library.
