The repository will NOT be automatically upgraded. The working copies will be the first time you touch them with a 1.6 client.

Since you are using a file repository you can keep it at its current version and use 1.6 clients.

I would install svn 1.6... use svnadmin upgrade to bring your repo up to 1.6.3... (no reboot needed) Then upgrade TSVN to 1.6.3 and update/cleanup/update all your WCs... that should work fine.
