Well one item in the WinXP extended context menu is "Pin to start menu"
- it appears for individual files ie shift right click on a file. So by
seeing if you can get that you can tell whether you have a generic
problem or a TSVN problem.

You did click in the *right hand* pane of Explorer? It doesn't work in
the left (tree view).
