Since nobody replied yet, I'd like to give you at least some standard
answers.
I see that you are using TSVN 1.9.0. Please note that as of today the
latest available version is 1.9.2. It might be worth a try to upgrade to
this and retest the issue.

With regards to the error u reported, I think to remember this type of
error at least in one case was (or still is?) related to a situation
where TSVN doesn't set an absolute path where SVN expects that. I'm not
sure about the state of this issue (it might have been long resolved and
I don't have a reference at hand). But maybe u could try to get some
better help on the tortoiseSVN user list when you point out:
- where your working directory is located (path, etc.)
- the path to your repository which the working copy is set to

If you can reproduce the issue using the default SVN command line
client, it might raise ur chances of someone providing further support
on this list too.

Regards,
Stefan
