The FAQ entry says:

After upgrading TortoiseSVN, all my icon overlays have disappeared
This is a known issue with some upgrades, and in particular it has
been reported for 1.6.8. If this happens to you, try doing a repair
install (and reboot of course).

What is unclear about that?

The installation script is the problem and it has been fixed on trunk,
so the fixed version will be released as 1.6.9 which should coincide
with SVN 1.6.12, or earlier if Stefan gets fed up with all the failure
reports ;-)

Sorry, you lost me there. What sort of icon? What files are out of
date? Is this the same issue you are talking about?
