With recent versions of TSVN, even though the overlays are still
provided by the shell extension, the *kind* (which overlay) is fetched
and watched/monitiored by TSVNCache.exe. And the cache now monitors the
root of each mounted volume for changes. If it can't monitor that, the
overlays don't seem to work because the cache assumes "unversioned" in
such cases.
So you must configure SAMBA so that ReadDirectoryChangesW() (the windows
API which is used for monitoring) can work. I don't know SAMBA enough to
tell you how you have to configure it though...
