TortoiseSVN crashing in Log dialog if ListView entries are queried by a screen reader for the visually impaired

Hi there!

I have sent two crash reports of this type of failure to the
appropriate crash report address on Thursday, July 6, around 4:30 P.M.
CEST, and on Friday, July 7th, at around 11:30 A.M. CEST.

Here's some more info on how to best debug this one:
1. Get the JAWS screen reader, version 7.10, from this address:

Choose the links "Free DEMO of JAWS 7.10 for Windows XP/2000 (55 MB)"
or "Free DEMO of JAWS 7.10 for Windows ME/98 (55 MB)", depending on
your operating system. These are 40 minute demos, meaning they'll run
for 40 minutes, and if you want to run them again, you have to restart
your computer.

2. Install the downloaded demo. You should be fine with a Typical

3. Once JAWS is talking to you, open a folder that contains files you
have checked out from an SVN repository.
4. Using the keyboard, highlight a file and press the APPLICATIONS KEY
to bring up the context menu.
Choose the TortouseSVN sub menu, and press ENTER on the "Log" menu
5. The "Log" dialog opens. Press TAB until you land in the ListView
that contains the revision history. It is the first ListView one lands
in when pressing TAB.
6. Notice that the first item is not selected (no highlight bar).
Press DOWN ARROW to highlight it.
7. This is where the crash occurs.

I experienced the crash with both the release build as well
as the nightly I downloaded this morning. The only
difference is: The build gave me a chance to send the crash
report ZIP in both cases, the did not.

I'm running Windows XP Service Pack 2 plus all updates.

If you need any help getting AWS to run, or if you need clarification
on any other point, just fire the question at me! Since this is a
rather special problem that doesn't concern that many developers, you
may take this off list if you prefer, it's all the same to me.


P.S. To uninstall JAWS:
1. Choose Freedom Scientific JAWS 7.10 from the Add/Remove Programs
2. When asked, choose to uninstall including shared components.
3. after the system reboot, you may find that JAWS has enlarged your
task bar icons. To reset them, go into control Panel, Display
properties, and re-select your Windows XP theme. Click Apply, and OK,
and you'll have everything back to normal.
