Thanks for the tips. I resolved the problem by upgrading from 1.3.5 to 1.4.4. I guess the problem was specific to that release.

Hi Robert:
I've had the problem of no icon overlays too. You can obtain a program called ClearInstall.exe from the Tortoise website, to "really uninstall" TSVN and then try to reinstall. I found that to be helpful in getting the overlays back, especially after trying to do a fresh install over an upgraded installation.
Also, being patient helps. I found that it can take 1-5 minutes for my overlays to update, but then I have ~3000 folders for TSVNCache to check. After a big merge, I usually go get a cup of coffee and when I get back, the overlays are back enough so I can resolve my conflicts. For small commits, the icons update in about 15-30 seconds, which isn't a problem for me.

Still no love. I uninstalled, rebooted and reinstalled, still with no icon overlays. Any ideas?

There must be an entry for every TSVN overlay icon below that registry
key. If it's not there, the installation didn't work properly:
uninstall, reboot, install again please.
