One obvious set of questions here would be:

When does the TC drive get mounted?

Might there be an issue with the TSVNCache process checking the TC
drive BEFORE it is mounted, seeing garbage there, and ignoring it
until the next time it gets started?

And, not that you are (because it would be a bad idea), but if you are
"auto-mounting" the TC drive, perhaps there is a funny timing
relationship between that happening and the TSVNCache process doing
the above check?
