Subversion Library and Win7 Integration Issue

The addition of the new subversion library and the actions it added to the folder were a big part of the push for me to upgrade. This is how I lost first the actions, and then the library altogether:

Before upgrading I had used a few hacky tricks to use the recorded TV and favorites to have quick access to my checked out sources. After installing the release, I had the new library and all of the actions in the top bar.

I then proceeded to go through reverting my hacky changes I used to change the original libraries back into their original uses.

I renamed them back to the original names, and restored default libraries by right clicking the libraries in the navigation pane. I believe that's all I did.

After this I lost the actions in the subversion library, so I attempted everything I could think of to get those back:

I did a repair install of TortoiseSVN, no change.
So I uninstalled and removed the appdata folders "Subversion" and "TortoiseSVN", removed HKCU/Software/TortoiseSVN from the registry (after making backups of all 3), and did some deep registry cleaning with CCleaner, Registry Mechanic, and Wise System Engineer.

I did notice that the subversion library itself is not removed by the uninstaller, but reinstalled the release after this cleanup and full uninstall to see if it would fix the actions. Failed.

I then repeated the process, uninstalling with the installer, and then removing the related registry node and appdata, but this time also manually removing the library.

I reinstalled the release after this, which now did not even recreate the library.

I then repeated the last process exactly except replacing the release with the Oct 19 nightly dev build.

This time the library was also not recreated.

Is it possible to give me the registry script or whatever it is that creates the library and new actions?

In summary, the issues:
1. Loses the actions somehow possibly related to restoring default libraries
2. Does not remove the subversion library, registry node, or appdata on full uninstall.
3. Does not recreate the library or actions on repair/fresh install after a full clean even.
