You have to realise something here: that bug with the right-drag menu
missing has been in TSVN for almost three weeks. And nobody noticed it,
even though there are plenty of people who use the nightly builds.
There's just no way you can assure that a piece of software has no bugs.
Or why do you think M$ has to release patches every month? They have a
big, big department which does only testing, and even then there are
bugs which slip through.

That's what the nightly builds are for now. You're free to grab one of
those and start testing. And Simon does a great job in testing TSVN!

Also, I hate it if I can't add features for a longer period, as would be
required for a "grace period".
