Ok, I managed to fix this in revision 4163 by adding a CustomAction
entry which sets the INSTALLDIR property to
[ProgramFilesFolder]\[ProductName] if it isn't already set.

But what still puzzles me is this structure in StructureFragment.wxs:

<Directory Id="TARGETDIR" Name="SourceDir">
  <Directory Id="D__ProgramFilesFolder" Name="PFiles" LongName="Program
    <Directory Id="INSTALLDIR" Name="TSVN" LongName="TortoiseSVN">

Why the first two folders? IMHO they can be removed completely? At
least, I couldn't see any change in the installer when I removed those
and built the installer again.

Another thing:
install TSVN, don't reboot.
doublclick on the msi again, choose 'remove'

Uninstalling works, but the setup throws an error message.
