I generally right click on the WC root and choose "Create Patch"
Generally the paths will be several layers deep, for example,
e:\users\galb\trunk\CRT\src\xyzzy.cpp (where e:\users\galb
is the WC root.)

When I apply the patch, I right click in the same place (WC root.)

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.4.3, Build 9282 - 64 Bit -dev, 2007/04/30
22:48:25. I also have the 32 bit version installed (so I can do
TSVN operations from file open dialogs of 32-bit devenv.)

This seems wrong to me. Every other change in the patch-file goes
directly into the WC. It seems that if I didn't want commit it,
I'd revert the add the same way I revert all the other changes.

There are so many unversioned files floating around my WC that
I don't generally view them. I generally add files as I
create them. My WC, between source and build output, is
hanging out at 5.3 GB right now...

Thanks,

Joseph
