Windows File Explorer problem - Tree grows constantly, entries show up multiple times

when using Windows File Explorer for a longer time (say 1 minute, 5 minutes, or similar), the tree on the left grows. This means: Entries like Desktop are shown multiple times; when using the explorer quite some time, the number of repeated entries grows and even the whole tree is repeated multiple times; additionally updates within the tree area do not behave correct any more, sometimes opening and closing folders with the + and - is not possible any more, ... (the attached screenshots gives an idea about how things behave in the beginning: desktop repeated multiple times, C and D not expandable, ...). What is interesting: the content area of the file explorer (the right part of it) behaves quite normal; you can click, navigate, ... no problems at all.
I do have this issue for quite several years now (really, at least since 2008); historically I thought this could be a problem with my user profile but as I changed computers and deleted my profiles a few times in the meantime I can say: This MUST be a TortoiseSVN-Problem. My newly installed computer hadn't had the problem unless I installed TortoiseSVN a few days ago now.
Currently I do have Windows XP (including all updates) and TortoiseSVN 1.6.11, Build 20210 - 32 Bit , 2010/09/30 20:36:44.
It is really annoying; this makes file explorer nearly unusable after several minurtes of use; I regularly have to open a new instance, switch to the path and use the new instance; after a few minutes repeat problems start again.
Do you have any hints for me - regarding this issue? How to fix it?
With best regards,
