I can't really tell you why this happens to TortoiseCVS. But I can
assure you that TortoiseSVN does not mess around with TortoiseCVS at
all. We don't touch any files or registry entries of other applications.

What you should know is that Windows has only a limited amount of
overlay slots. If you have both TSVN and TCVS installed, some of the
overlays won't show up because there simply are too many.
You can check the installed overlay handlers on this registry key:
Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers
(under both HKLM and HKCU).
