Did you upgrade AnkhSVN to a version compatible with SVN 1.6 when you
upgraded TSVN?

If you touch a WC with multiple clients, all those clients must be
built on the same major.minor SVN libraries due to WC format changes.

Client & server versions are independent as long as you stay within
1.x. Newer features will be partially or completely disabled depending
upon what versions you have in the mix, but with a 1.5 server
(VisualSVN Server 1.6 is SVN 1.5) and 1.6 clients, there's no change
in functionality.
