You might want to look into managed mounts for Cygwin 1.5.x. See
Also, the next Cygwin release (1.7) should not have this problem. (No,
there is no expected release date.)

Problems with the Cygwin version of svn should be sent to cygwin AT
cygwin.com. I'm the maintainer of the Cygwin subversion port and I
monitor the Cygwin list more closely than users@.
