I can think of two possibilities:

* TortoiseSVN by default doesn't show its special icons on network
  drives, because doing so would take rather a long time. But you can
  tell it to show them anyway by fiddling something in its config
  dialog. Perhaps if you did that you'd also get to see the correct
  context menu.

* Perhaps your co-worker is using a pre-release version of TortoiseSVN
  or svn, which is based in subversion 1.4.x, and hence his working
  copy's .svn/format file contains a number greater than 4 -- if
  that's the case, either beg him to downgrade, or switch to that new
  version yourself. (I think begging him to downgrade is safer --
  after all, 1.4.x hasn't been officially released)

old-fashioned nuts.
