Clarification: TortoiseCVS icon overlays conflict with TortoiseSVN

To clarify a post I made an hour or so ago: I've done more investigation, and the source of my problem is that TortoiseCVS directly conflicts with TortoiseSVN when it comes to the display of overlay icons on my Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP2 machine. I have the latest 64-bit versions of both programs installed, and no matter the order of installation, when both are installed TortoiseCVS wins. No TortoiseSVN icons are displayed in Windows Explorer at all.
So I uninstalled TortoiseCVS (and got the TortoiseSVN icons back), and installed WinCVS instead. Not an ideal solution, but it is functional, because a project I am on has several repositories, some CVS, some SVN. Any fix to this problem on the horizon? I saw some talk on Web postings about using common icon overlay handlers, but that does not seem to be the case for the current 64-bit versions. TortoiseCVS is evidently too aggressive, and TortoiseSVN is too much of a good citizen. ;)
Thanks! Enjoy!
