Hello Ben; thanks for your quick response and advice!

This is a reasonable option. Unfortunate, but reasonable. If this approach
will indeed fix my problem (and there are no more elegant fixes), I will
take it. It will slow the adoption of subversion by my organization, as
everybody uses cygwin and cvs, and is considering migrating to subversion --
and this will make it more difficult for each developer to get his/her
environment working. And it seems to me this is a pretty common type of
setup, too.

I can buy that the problem may be on the Cygwin side; but given that other
applications work fine (notably cvs), is there not a simple way to just make
this work? If this is a specific design decision, a tradeoff made
consciously, and a known issue that won't be addressed, that's okay; I just
wanted to make sure it wasn't a real, fixable bug.
