Re: TSVN 1.6.5 and Win7 x64 missing overlays

I am getting the same issue: only the modified icon is available on
Win7 x64 RTM. I only have TSVN installed, not TCVS. All the entries
for other icons seem to be present in the registry. However I'm having
a hard time tracking down a copy of TSVN 1.6.4.
