DLL hell with Latest Tortoise Release Version

Hi there. I have used TortoiseSVN for a while - it's great!
Unfortunately, I've found a problem on my machine with the 1.3.1 release.

After installing it, TortoiseSVN works fine, but many other programs do
not. The particular problem is msvcr80.dll, which is installed into the
%WINDIR%\system32 directory by Tortoise's installer. After install,
many programs report that the entry point _encode_pointer cannot be
found in this dll.

Presumably, it's a dll version problem, and may be something to do with
the DLL search path on my machine. However, everything works fine until
I install 1.3.1, and the problem can be fixed by using the old version.

I'm running Win2000 Professional, with the .NET Framework 2.0 Beta
installed. Before install, I found msvcr80.dll installed in the dir:

I'd certainly love to use the new version - can anyone tell me what's
going on here?

I hope this report is useful to someone; keep up the great work developing!


- Luke
