The paths must not have quotes in the path file. Every path is on a
separate line, so quotes are not necessary.

Not sure. But you could compare the path file TSVN passes to
TortoiseProc with the one you're passing.

Since TSVN removes its path file immediately after use, you can set the
registry DWORD value
to 1 - this will pop up a dialog with the command line. If you don't
click on the OK button, you have time enough to find the path file and
examine it.
