Yes, the context menu has changed so that it now uses the native themed
UI of windows. And it doesn't use ownerdraw anymore. But it still works

Well, maybe. But let's be honest here: if this happens even if TSVN is
uninstalled (whether it is due to another shell extension or due to some
(unknown to us) configuration doesn't matter), then the bug is clearly
in XnView.
Another indication that it's XnViews fault is that this only happens if
you right-click on an image where XnView provides a preview for. Since
context menu handlers are invoked for *all* files, the XnView handler is
also invoked for non-image files (but XnView then decides to do
nothing). Which means that this gets triggered by something XnView does
*while showing the preview*.

Just enjoy your holidays. Bug checking doesn't count as holidays :)
