If that's what you see on your system, then that's not what TSVN does.
Something else must interfere and screw up the shell extension.

The only thing that TSVN does is to provide the revision number for
the "file version" column, but only if it isn't already filled in by
other means (windows takes care of that).
Oh, it also fills in the 'author' column, if the file itself doesn't
have an author (e.g., MS Word files do have an author set and shown in
that column, but text files don't).
