If you're using the 1.6.x version, you have to remove/comment code in
TortoiseSVN.cpp, DllMain(). Just remove/comment everything at the start
of that function between the #ifdef _DEBUG statement.
The reason is that this doesn't work on Win7 anymore, so that code isn't
there anymore on trunk.

Another problem on Win7 is that it's not possible to start a separate
explorer process from VS. All you can do is to start one yourself and
then attach the debugger to that process.
