Bug report - Crash instead of showing context menu after right click

From: Red*Star <Redstar2nd_at_gmx.de>

Hello there,

I have a somewhat weird bug here with TortoiseSVN 1.5.0. I've searched
the internet, took a look at the existent bug reports, the changelog,
etc., but none of it did help me: The existent bug reports on similar
bugs to the one that I have, do not contain a solution or do not contain
a solution that is appropriate or do not contain a solution that worked.

System info - it's:

TortoiseSVN 1.5.0, Build 13316 - 32 Bit, 2008/06/21 07:55:29
on Windows XP Professional (SP3)

The last TortoiseSVN version I used (1.4.something) worked perfectly for
me: It is a real joy to use it - exactly that makes the situation so sad :(.

The bug:

> "what you did, what you wanted to happen, and what actually happened"

I click with the right mouse button on a file, I want to see the context
menu, what I get is an explorer crash.

Details: However, it isn't related to the explorer: I've tested it also
with PowerDesk and another program. I guess it's something general with
the shell integration.
And now the "strange" thing: It's *no* problem when I right-click on a
drive (e.g. "C:\") - the context menu shows up - and it's also *no*
problem when I click on a Link file. It doesn't matter where: *.lnk
files seem to never cause a crash. Contrariwise I can surely 100% rely
on the Explorer crashing when clicking on *any* other regular file or
Behaviour on both file systems FAT32 and NTFS is the same.

I've encircled possible causers definitely to TortoiseSVN, because when
I uninstall it, everything works, when I install it, I get the described

Does anybody have an idea what the reason is and/or how to solve this?

With kind regards,
