Hi Derek,

thanks for reporting this problem. From your dump file, I could see
that the log cache list (%APPDATA%\TortoiseSVN\repositories.dat)
failed to load. It probably got corrupted during the crash. TSVN 1.6.x
does not catch exceptions at that point. I fixed that for 1.7.x.

To get your TSVN working again, please do the following:

* open the Settings dialog
* trying to display the "Cached Repositories" page should result
  in an error or even crash (just to verify that the list file is to blame)
* if necessary, re-open Settings
* on "Saved Data", delete all log cache info by clearing
  "log messages (Show log dialog)"

If that does not work for some reason, delete the folder
%APPDATA%\TortoiseSVN\logcache manually.
