Ok, I'm trying to explain what TSVN does:
it registers a column handler extension, and provides several additional
columns for explorer. The "author" column that explorer already has is
used by TSVN to provide author information on versioned files. Other
than that, TSVN does not interfere with any standard explorer columns.

I first thought you meant that TSVN would show its information in
columns that are not its own. But now I suspect that you mean that your
default columns are not shown but instead the 'SVN ...' columns are
shown instead.
That however is completely out of TSVN's control and is handled by
explorer itself. It's the explorer who shows the wrong columns, but that
has been the case I think ever since win2k or even win95. There's
nothing TSVN can do to prevent this.
