I cannot say yes/no definitly, not knowing XP that closely. It's
possible I had started the computer as a user with admin rights before
logging out of that account and starting Guest for the first time
without doing a complete power-down.

I have tried to rerun that scenario (once) just now but could not
reproduce the symptoms.

TortoiseSVN appears to me to be running properly from a Guest rights
account on my oldish
but excellent single core 1.4Ghz HP/compaq nx9040. Ah the luxury of a
real Com and Printer port.
