That's the one: if both checkouts *and* the check for an update
version have problems, then it's definitely *not* a TortoiseSVN
problem. Because, the check for the updated version is done using the
Internet-Explorer control which is installed on every Windows version.
If it fails with that, you have a serious network problem, not just
one with TSVN.
