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".

Thanks!  I'll give it a try and when I can get this problem fixed, I'll write up the resolution for the list.
