"properly supporting UAC" = a configuration setting that, when checked, tells TortoiseSVN (the explorer context menu handler) to launch TortoiseProc.exe as elevated.

I'm willing to put up with the incessant UAC prompts.

For those who claim I'm doing something wrong with NTFS access:

My Windows account is a member of the Administrators group. When this is the case, files created by processes running with elevated privs are owned by the Administrators group, not by the account itself. Other non-elevated processes (such as TortoiseSVN) therefore do not have access to the files.

Believe me, this has been debugged to death. See here

"If files are created by a user/process that is in the local administrators group, those files are owned by the group, not the user and can only be modified with elevated privileges. Yes that is totally insane, but that's the way Microsoft did it."

Even granting my account (as well as the Administrators group) explicit access to each and every file and folder in the tree separately does not get around the situation. Tortoiseproc only works in these folders when run with elevated privs.
