Security Hole Exploit in tortoiseproc?

Greetings,

If this is normal behavior please let me know. I was committing two new files
into the repository when a TortoiseProc window popped up informing me that
something bad happened and it needed to close. It requested a description of the
user activities prior to the crash, which I provided. I then proceeded to send
the report. However, it did something quite odd. I got a weird little message
from outlook saying "a program is trying to access email addresses you have
stored in outlook. do you want to allow this?" I clicked NO twice. Then it said
something about the message not being sent. NOW it is prompting me to save this
file called TortoiseProc, format type ZIP, somewhere. I am not going to save
this file, but find this entire series of events suspect.

If this is normal behavior, please do let me know (I am not a list subscriber).

Thank you!

Regards,
Alexandra Stehman
