I can not reproduce this here (XP SP3, using latest nightly build).
Do you have more information on how to reproduce this?

Now that's highly unlikely: the explorer process has *nothing* to do
with the switch dialog at all. If the branch dialog hangs and you kill
it, the only thing what could happen is that the working copy is still
in a locked state (but then you didn't kill the branch dialog but the
second dialog that pops up: the progress dialog).

If you really have to restart the explorer process, then something else
is interfering here. Another shell extension maybe?
