Are you really using shortcuts? With shortcuts I can't reproduce this
here: only the shortcut itself (the *.lnk file) is affected.

However if you use NTFS links, you're on your own since as a shell
extension, TSVN will never be able to handle these the way you want.
Shell extensions only get the target path passed to them, with no way to
find out the source NTFS link.
