Cool! I didn't know that (what I remember).

So if you place a shortcut in a version folder, select it and click the "File"-menu; presto! You have three entries. :-D

I really think that the present visual cues are inadequate. Even though I knew about the shortcut-double-menu, I failed to recognize the purpose the second menu under file. (Ok, I'm sorta in a hurry and didn't look too closely.)

Would it be possible to append a textual designation " - File", " - Folder" or " - Shortcut" only when there is more than one "copy" the TSVN-iten in a menu. (I'm only talking about the "TortoiseSVN"-entry here (the one with the changing icon), not any items moved to the top level for convenience.)
I think that would make it sufficiently clear, without cluttering the "normal case" where we have only one TSVN-menu-item.
