TSVN Crash After Trying to Export Compared Revision Differences

Hello All,

Thank you for taking the time to review and hopefully assist with this bug.
I searched both Google and your site for this bug, and I did in fact find
it. However all references to it were for older versions of Tortoise than
mine. I do apologize if I've missed something, and there is already a
fix. If that is the case, please feel free to point me to it.

Please Cc me on all replies to vcardillo@gmail.com

TortoiseSVN 1.4.4, Build 9706 - 64 Bit , 2007/06/09 09:44:02

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.3.2 (r19776)
   compiled Aug 1 2006, 15:24:52

Windows XP 64bit edition.

== What I did: ==

In my repo, I have a tags folder for taking snapshots of my code. I
recently fixed a bug in my web application project, and needed to push the
fix to live. I ctrl-clicked two tag folders within the repo browser, right
clicked them, and selected Compare Revisions. This then generates a list of
all files that have changed between the revisions of both folders, in a
window titled "Changed Files". Then, I highlight all of the files, right
click, and choose "Export Selection to...". I select a folder location to
save the files, and click OK.

== What is expected: ==

I have done this operation many times before. What I expected was for
Tortoise to export those files to the selected folder, without any problems.

== What actually happened: ==

At this point I am presented with two dialog boxes. The first's titlebar
says "Please wait..." and the box says "Getting file [some file within the
selected list]" with a progress bar that never moves. The window is movable
by me and is not frozen. The second dialog box's title bar says
"TortoiseSVN" and the content area has a big red X, with the message "Access
is denied." After clicking OK on the TortoiseSVN dialog, the Changed Files
list window freezes, and crashes. A WindowsXP crash report appears.
Sometimes, a TortoiseSVN crash report dialog appears as well. Unfortunately
I see no pattern as to why or why not.

= =

Nothing in the repo has changed. I just checked permissions, and I have
both read and write access to all of my folders.

Again, thank you for your time. And please Cc any replies to
