I've also seen this (and gotten confused for a few seconds) if I create a
new directory to put the new file in.

Since the new directory is not (yet) under version control, TortoiseSVN
doesn't show any version control options for files inside. You need to add
the directory before you can add any files inside it. Or, just add the both
of them together when you add the directory.
