Just right-drag the files to the location where you want to export them.
And choose "SVN Export to here" from the right-drag context menu.
Exporting via right-click and the TSVN menu will pass all your paths to
the Subversion library and make that one do the job - and the SVN
library tends to use the parent path for multiple paths, then go from there.
