1.6.1: wrong context menu on unversioned files on network drive

Hi all,

I assume, I discovered a bug in the recent versions of TortoiseSVN. I
had this with 1.6.0 and still with 1.6.1 on german 32-bit WinXP SP3.

Here's what I did long before upgrading to 1.6.x

 * activated icon overlay for network drives
 * checked out a wc on network drive N:\ which is automatically mounted
   by the scripts in the Windows Domain environment at work
 * worked as usual with update, commit, branch, add, ...

Now I upgraded to 1.6.x. When right clicking on an unversioned file in
this working copy on the network drive I get the same context menu for
versioned _and_ unversioned files. This makes it impossible to add an
unversioned file with TortoiseSVN (I do this with the command line
version of subversion now). Of course the shown menu points don't make
sense on unversioned files and fail with different error messages.

This does not occur on a local hard drive!

The subversion server has version 1.4.x, access is via https and
htaccess secured.

I hope you can find the reason for this behaviour and fix it in the next
