That is the version I have installed on my machine, but the call to svnversion that returns the value "exported" refers to the version which is in our repository - and that is 1.6.6. Looking, along the same path as the link you provided, at the code for the 1.6.x version, there is this comment:

And while I am curious as to how I managed to get it into that state, I found that using the 1.7.7 version returns the correct value. So I will chalk it up to either the difference in the versions or outright user error and just be content for the moment that it is working.

If you are using TortoiseSVN 1.7.x then your working copy will be in
1.7 format. You may recall from the release notes that there was a
major change to the working copy format moving from 1.6 to 1.7. So if
you try to use svnversion 1.6.x on a 1.7.x working copy then it will
not recognise the new format at all and just see unversioned files.
