TortoiseSVN Can't Create Socket

I've been getting the following error message while trying to connect to a remote repository:

Can't create socket: The requested service provider could not be loaded or initialized.

I'm able to reproduce this issue with RapidSVN. Fortunately RapidSVN displays a more detailed error message so I'm able to figure out that libeay32.dll is the root of the problem.

In my development box, I have three different versions of libeay32.dll:
1. C:\WINDOWS\system32\libeay32.dll 668Kb (Version number is unavailable)
2. C:\Program Files\RapidSVN\bin\libeay32.dll 828Kb (Version number is unavailable)
3. C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin\libeay32.dll 996Kb (Version 0.9.8a)

It looks like one of the Windows 2003 server updates I installed has changed the way Windows locates which dll to use when I run TortoiseSVN. Now it uses the one in my windows\system32 folder which is incompatible with TortoiseSVN and RapidSVN. I can't remove libeay32.dll from my windows\system32 folder because it causes an issue with my LAN network card, wireless network card, and SQL Server 2000.

I posted this issue in RapidSVN forum and they're planning to link RapidSVN statically with OpenSSL for the next release. Has anyone else reported a similar issue with libeay32.dll?

I love using TortoiseSVN because it's nicely integrated with Windows Explorer. Do you guys have any plan to statically link OpenSSL from TortoiseSVN in the near future? I would really love to continue using TortoiseSVN as a client.
