How recent is the TCVS version you're using? Only more recent versions
of TSVN and TCVS are able to share overlay icons, and since Explorer has
a limit of 14 overlay images in total with extraneous overlay icons
simply not showing up you might have too many...

(Looks like you'll need to use the latest unstable build since the
changelog for 1.11.1 [1] says "First release using TortoiseOverlays"...)

Come to think of it - there aren't any 64-bit versions of TortoiseCVS;
so if it's overlay icons are showing up you'd have to actually be using
the 32-bit Windows Explorer, which of course means you'll have to also
install a 32-bit version of TSVN...
