The .mar files are versioned but they are not shortcut. They appear as
shortcuts in Windows because of their extension. So, no, I don't have
two entries.

Selecting the files and then using the "File" menu in explorer shows the
TortoiseSVN menu but this does not have the SVN Delete command and it
doesn't seem to apply to the .mar file I have selected. I mean, if I
click on SVN Show Log I get the log of the whole directory not of that
file.

I'm sure that if I change the application that extension is assigned to
everything would work fine. I'm also sure that there isn't much more
that TortoiseSVN could do, it's just another Windows "feature" that we
have to live with.
