Using clients from two different OSes on the same w/c is not recommended.

But what I don't get - why do you need to do this?

If your nightly build scripts checkout a working copy and do the build,
then what's so interesting about looking at that working copy the next
morning - it won't have any modifications. You could delete it before
dawn and not loose anything. (provided you don't delete your build,
results etc)

Or are you saying that the nightly build runs from the developer's
working copy? In which case, how does the Unix svn client come into
play at all?
