The problem is that the TSVNCache.exe process is started as the first
user logging in. Then the next users can't access the communication pipe
of that process. I don't know how, but you could try to give the
TSVNCache.exe process enough privileges (or all other users) to access
the communication pipe of the TSVNCache.exe process.
If that doesn't help, go to the settings dialog and change the overlay
status cache from "default" to "shell".
