This is probably a newbie question, but why not have two working copies,
one on each machine, checked out separately? Then just remember to
commit on the machine you're leaving and update on the machine your
arriving at. This sounds like exactly the sort of thing that Subversion
is supposed to handle perfectly. Is there a good reason for trying to
have two copies of the same working copy? If you can run Unison, you
can probably run an ssh user@remotehost "cd work/projectx ; svn commit"...

Or am I missing something?

Have fun,
