No, it doesn't create separate threads at all. And it's apartment
threaded, which means it must not be called from different threads
either. If you use it from different threads, you must load a separate
instance of it for each thread.

I've spent the last three hours running stress tests with your app and
TSVN's shell extension. I couldn't get it to crash. But if you can, you
could use a nightly build. The nightly builds have the pdb files
uploaded too (for the shell extension dll and TortoiseProc). The pdb
files are the debug symbols which you have to place in the same
directory as the dlls/exes are installed (e.g., C:\program
files\TortoiseSVN\bin). If it then crashes, you can catch the crash with
your debugger, and if it's a good debugger it will load the pdb files
and show you much more information (stacktrace, file location, ...).

Sorry I can't be of more help here, but as long as I can't reproduce it,
I can't find the problem.
