That fix isn't TSVN specific: it's built into the Subversion libraries
TSVN depends on. Only requirement is that the host system reports
itself as a Windows variant, which Cygwin doesn't... If you want
native problems solved, you need to use native software.... (IOW:
svn.exe for Windows doesn't have this problem either.)
