The ieshims.dll is not used by TSVN. It shows up in the dependency
walker because the shell uses that dll if it's available, but it doesn't
fail if it's not (it's not a 'hard' requirement).

So your problems have nothing to do with IE8.

Try uninstalling TSVN completely, reboot, then install it again.
