Cleanup is implemented by the subversion library, not TSVN. If it is
damaging your working copy you should report that on the subversion
list. BUT first, cleanup is roght next to Revert in the TSVN menu. Are
you sure you didn't hit the wrong entry by mistake? Cleanup shows an
animation similar to the Windows file copy. Revert brings up a dialog
with a list of changed files. Which did you see?
