If you're in Snow Leopard, the icon badges just aren't gonna work in this version, sorry: still on the roadmap, but not on your desktop. (Some people have noticed a scattering of working badges immediately after an upgrade to Snow Leopard, but it's not real, seems to be some sort of left-over cache from your Leopard days.)

If you're still running Leopard or earlier, you should be able to get working badges through a fairly complex and finicky sequence of operations. The central problem is that you're trying to (1) flush Finder's cache of icons, then (2) get SCPlugin enabled within Finder, and (3) *only* *then* allow Finder to open any folder that's actually under Subversion control. You're trying to fool the Finder into doing something it never intended to do, and Finder's a pretty smart AI, for good or ill, and remarkably hard to fool. I believe the most successful sequence of steps is documented here:
