I haven't tried bash, but I've had great success using Cygwin +
/bin/tcsh. The suggestion that you might be getting 2 different
executables is a good one. It might be helpful to find a user you can
use as test case. Use the "find" command to look for "*svn*", delete
everything, and reinstall it from scratch.

An alternative is to try a GUI like RapidSVN as an aid to diagnosis
and/or as a temporary workaround.
