On your flashdrive is a WC. Inside that WC is (in the .svn dirs) the URL of
the repository, e.g. "file://C:/home/rolf/svn-repository"
or "http:///home-desktop.example.local/svn".

If you now try to commit, SVN creates a connection to the repository using the
URL. If it's a file path, and it finds the repository there, it will commit
to the repository, but I don't think that could have happened without error,
because it is unlikely that at the exact same location on your work machine
is also a repository that has the exact same content.

If you commit using an http URL and your home machine is found even though
you're in a different network, the commit went to the right repository.
Otherwise you would have gotten an error, too.

The only thing I could imagine is the repository being on the same flash disk
as your working copy, but in that case, too, you wouldn't have any problem.

Summary: You should have gotten an error for that commit or you would have
committed to the correct repository. It's still unclear what exactly you did.
Also, the requested 'svn info' output is still missing. If you're using
TortoiseSVN, you can select "Properties" from the Explorer, you should have a
tab "Subversion" there which contains the relevant info.
