Right. Now I see that Vista says it's 64 bits in its "Computer" /
"Properties" page.

Well, believe me or not, starting from an installation with both the
32 bits and 64 bits versions of TSVN, I first removed the 32 bits one
and the context menu disappeared (while overlays were still present).

Then I removed the 64 bits version as well, and reinstalled only the
64 bits version. Now works as expected (everything).

Summing up: It seems I was fooled by my vendor plus Vista itself that
both stated my OS is a 32 bits Vista. This was wrong. Digging in the
OS it says it's Vista x64. So the 64 bits version of TSVN must be used
and works for me. There is a strange interaction with the 32 bits
version of TSVN but I will stop here investigations to understand why
this happens.

Thanks to the TSVN developers who make such a great tool available.
Hats off.
