A CWinApp in a COM-object is not good. But if it's required, it
shouldn't cause much problems (depending on your InitInstance).

If that's all your InitInstance is doing, then that's ok.
And make sure that you don't have any global objects which do something
in their constructors.

In the settings dialog, activate the option:
Settings->Icon overlays->Show overlays and context menu items only in

If that helps, then TSVN really seems to trigger something in your
debugger. But you can check our code: we don't do anything in DllMain
which isn't allowed.
