As I remember, you can either run Explorer as admin or run it
normally. You cannot do both. That includes your actual Desktop. So,
practically, you cannot run Explorer elevated (or if you do you might
as well just turn off UAC as your desktop and every other Explorer
window, and every thing you launch from them are all elevated).

I didn't say you could. A new TortoiseSVN process is generally
launched in reaction to each context menu command, for the duration of
that command (and independent of any other TortoiseSVN commands). You
can run that command elevated if you want to. That's all I mean.

Except you cannot easily run Explorer elevated, except in ways where
you might as well simply turn off UAC, as I said.
