Vista shortcut to checkout directory - wrong context menu

Hi there,

I noticed that when I create a Vista shortcut to the checkout directory, and
open it using the shortcut, the SVN context menu is wrong - it shows the
"SVN Checkout..." menu item instead of the "SVN Update/Commit..." items.
When right-clicking on a file, it works the right way.
I have noticed, that the explorer address bar shows the path including the
shortcut, which might be the source of the problem.

Here's how to reproduce the issue:

1. Checkout to E:\MyProject
2. Create a shortcut on the desktop for E:\MyProject
3. Open the checkout directory using the desktop shortcut (note the
addressbar: "...\Desktop\MyProject - Shortcut")
4. Right-click in empty folder space - The context menu shows "SVN
Checkout..." instead of "SVN Update..."

And I'd really like to thank you - TortoiseSVN is a great tool and I love to
keep discovering new features!

Best regards,
