Bug or Feature? Commit Selection ignored

I guess it is considered as a feature that just escapes me, but after
falling into this bug trap for several times during the last year I can't
find it funny anymore and seriously think about switching back to
exclusive use of the SVN commandline:

1) start commit dialog through right click menue in file manager;

2) select some of the files and enter the commit message;

3) leave it as it is (repository not available on the LAN, a customer
calls in, anything that keeps you from fnishing by hitting the
commit button);

4) computer goes into standby or hibernation (these are laptops
though used stationary most of the time);

5) after reactivation the commit dialog is as it was before;

6) click on commit and ...

7) *all* modified/added/deleted files will be committed, no matter if
they were selected or not. Equally files modified/added/deleted
since originally calling the commit dialog.

It really is not funny, breaking the idea of meaningful revisions.
Like just committing everything before lunch and before going
home, no matter if things belong together or are ready for
commission into trunk. I'd rather go back and edit commit lists for
the command line ...
