Testing with a test repository/working copy gave some clues:

1) checkout WC with three files: foo.txt, bar.txt, newfoo.txt

2) modify foo.txt && bar.txt

3) call commit dialog and select foo.txt

4) standby/hibernate - wakeup cycle

5) commit: only foo.txt is committed in both cases

That's okay. Now another attempt:

1) modify foo.txt && bar.txt

2) call commit dialog and select foo.txt && bar.txt (or just leave
them selected)

3) standby/hibernate - wakeup cycle

4) modify newfoo.txt

5) now foo.txt, bar.txt, newfoo.txt are committed (newfoo.txt should
have not)

That's not okay, but what happened to me several times this last
year or so. It is, however, exactly what Stefan Fuhrmann described
in his other reply, only that I should have done this test before
posting - with three files things are a little easier to figure than with
a whole bunch, furthermore interspersed with files not yet/never to
be added. When it happened I never paid attention to the thought if
I had specifically selected some files or if it happened to be all
modified files under version control.

Looks like a workaround necessitating another workaround in some
cases. ;)

Nah, it's not too bad - did it long enough intentionally before setting
up TSVN at all. Just a little nastier, that's all. And on the XP
machine even not that much given the stupid irritating full path
popup on cursor (mouse completely out of the window) movement
in the file list I never could turn off as in W2K.

Thanks both of you!
