   Ok, I reproduced this using TortoiseSVN 1.5.2. You just need to have
a repository with two folders and in each of those folders you need to
have a file. And after you update your sandbox, just modify both files
and attempt to commit from the root folder.

   Using Windows XP SP3 and this is my exact version information
collected from the TortoiseSVN about box:

> TortoiseSVN 1.5.2, Build 13595 - 32 Bit , 2008/07/31 17:04:57
> Subversion 1.5.1,
> apr 1.2.12
> apr-utils 1.2.12
> berkeley db 4.4.20
> neon 0.28.2
> OpenSSL 0.9.8g 19 Oct 2007
> zlib 1.2.3

   This is the folder structure and files on which I can reproduce this
behaviour every time:

   | |--visualStudioBuild.cmd
   | |--[...plus some extra files...]
   | |--user_guide.txt
   | |--[...plus some extra files...]
   |--[...plus some extra folders here...]

   Using TortoiseSVN I just click on the root folder, choose commit,
select the two modified files, enter the commit message, press ok and
presto... 'your application has performed an illegal operation' +
<send>/<don't send> buttons...

   Hope this helps.

   Best regards,
