I noticed the following download description on the TortoiseSVN page:

"Version for NT4/Win2k/XP (special version! We provide NO 
support for this!) uses _svn folders instead of .svn to work around the 
VS.NET bug with web projects. If you don't use web projects then please 
use the official version. Note: working copies created by this version 
are incompatible with other Subversion clients!"

So apparently the problem doesn't affect _all_ windows clients. But 
someone else will have to fill in the details, as the above is all I've 
heard about it.
