Ok, I'd like to point out again my request for the backport:
Revision 10144 fixes a crash when fetching the status. I discovered this
crash because people complained about TSVN crashing their desktop. It
took a while until someone could send me a stacktrace of such a crash
(after all, when this happens a part of the OS itself (the desktop)
crashes, so that makes debugging very hard), but the crash happens on
several peoples machines. Now, if the desktop crashes (TSVN integrates
into the explorer, which is a part of the desktop) then the user usually
has to reboot or log off and on again.

TSVN consists of two parts: the main part which does all the work, and
the shell integration part which draws the icon overlays and provides
the context menu. The shell integration part only uses the
svn_client_status() API, nothing else (i.e. no repository access at
all). So bugs in other parts than svn_client_status() are not that
critical for TSVN, but in svn_client_status() they are.

So in my opinion such a fix has a high priority - at least for TSVN.
