Uninstall issue wrt/ the asp.net hack

I found a small uninstall (and arguably install) issue with an easy work around but which might be a good bug to fix.

Here's the steps to reproduce:

Install Tortoise with the asp.net option checked.
Decide you don't want that asp.net hack.... so uninstall Tortoise.
Reinstall Tortoise with the asp.net option *unchecked*.

Expected behavior: Tortoise would not do the asp.net hack anymore.
Actual behavior: Tortoise continues to do the asp.net hack

Work around: Go into your system environment variables and remove the variable SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK .

I think that the uninstall operation should unconditionally remove the hack environment variable if it exists. It might also be a good idea to remove the variable on install if it exists and the hack option is unchecked.

I know it sucks to have bugs related to what is a hack in the first place. However, I thought the list might find this info helpful.
