    I'm using Cygwin svn/svnadmin. I have autosave enabled. When I create a new
    file, the 'svn add' works as expected. But when I try to save it, I get some
    path strangeness:

    svn:'/cygdrive/c/Users/brian/C:/Users/brian' is not a working copy
    svn:'/cygdrive/c/Users/brian/C:/Users/brian' does not exist

    Note that C:/Users/brian is, indeed, under svn control. But for some reason,
    C:/ is getting expanded to /cygdrive/c, so of course the borked path is not
    valid. Any ideas?

    in what way do you use cygwin ?
    Is the svn-command from cygwin ?

    The tool "sliksvn" works fine here ...

    Yes, I'm simply using the cygwin svn package...TMX is started normally from
    the desktop.

    Guess I'll need to try sliksvn and see if the problem goes away. Thanks...

    Well, sliksvn solved the problem. It would appear Cygwin's svn package is
    incompatible, presumably due to the path borking that Cygwin does, trying to
    convert Window-style paths to POSIX-style. Thanks for the assist!
