Yes. Do not use rsync. Only use svn, and commit after working, and update on the other machine to get the changes.

Or, if you don't like having a gazillion intermediate commits in your trunk, you could also create a branch an work on that. You'd commit the intermediate changes in the branch and merge it in trunk when you've completed a task, keeping your trunk's history clean.
