Are your mapped drives all up and running at that time, or are some
still 'unknown' (e.g., because the network isn't fully up yet)?
TSVN asks for every 'drive type' when it first starts up, and the API
which returns that information is not very fast, especially if the
network is not ready yet or has problems (happens sometimes with my WLAN).

If they're up and and fine (i.e., that's not the reason) then please
download some registry checker/cleaner to check whether there are shell
extensions still registered but not available anymore (i.e., the
registry still points to some dlls but the dlls are not there anymore).
