Sorry but that's hardly the same thing! It is quite obvious to Windows
under those circumstances that you are specifically TRYING to create a
duplicate folder - why else would you paste a folder back into the
folder it is already in? Under ALL other circumstances, if you copy a
folder called "foo" into a *different* folder which already contains a
folder called "foo", you get a dialog that says "Confirm Folder Replace"
(see attached screenshot). I think it would be better (and more useful)
if TSVN export behaved like Windows under these circumstances as this
would give you the option to more easily export source files one folder
at a time.

I agree - it shouldn't be implemented unless there is also a warning
dialog telling you what it is about to do otherwise it would be
dangerous. :)

Also I forgot to mention, if you select quite a few folders at once and
choose export all, TSVN pops up an error dialog at the end of the export
process with no dialog title and no text in the dialog (just an OK
button) (v 1.4). (see attached)
