The problem is that TSVN has to fetch the status of the item you
right-click on so it knows what entries to show for the context menu.
That requires accessing the shortcut target. In your case, the target is
not reachable, but Windows tries to reach it anyway (until it times out).
That's why it takes forever to show the context menu.

To reduce the accesses, create the registry key
and set the DWORD value to 1.

Note that with that registry value set, the context menu will always
show all context menu entries (e.g., 'add' for already versioned items).

I'm sorry, but that's all I can tell you to do, and I can't fix this either.
