Solved my own problem -- and it was a dumb config error. In 
Preferences->Advanced->Shell Variables, TM_RUBY wasn't correct for my 
installation. It was /usr/local/bin -- should be /usr/local/bin/ruby. 
With that fix, svn commits (and other svn functions) now work correctly.

I'm guessing that one of the updates changed this shell variable, as 
previously svn was working fine within TM. Hope this saves someone the 
same puzzle anyway...
