This is a know issue with NT4.0.
I suffered this problem with other software and was encouraged to
install IE4, extract and run with the Shell32.dll that came with that
version. However Once you put IE 6 on there is no going back to IE4
apart from a complete re-install of NT4.0.
There is absolutely no guarantee that running with the other dll will
work with TortoiseSVN, as stated in the release notes.
Shame on MS. It smelt like a deliberate ploy to have us all buy Win2000.
I like NT4 for debugging. There seemed to be less coupling between
crashed code and other executing programs than I see with Win2000.
Now that's off my chest.
