I recall that an earlier 1.4 version of TortoiseSVN reported a similar
error (happily though it gave me an option to continue with the
operation anyway). That's definately fixed in the latest 1.4 release.

If the TSVN problem was caused by a bug in Subversion then that would
imply the latest 1.4 Subversion is fixed, so my suggestion would be to
try and upgrade.
