I think you figured out the problem. To test it, I created a check-out
folder directly on my hard drive. The direct folder always shows the
overlay icons, but the folders on my TC drive show the icons intermittently
per my previous description.

Hoping it might force Tortoise to refresh when the TC drive is mounted, I
added the path of my TC drive ("Z:\*") to the "Include paths" setting in
Tortoise. That seems to have fixed the problem - now I always see the icons
on my TC drive.

Thanks for your help!

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?
