It's not so much an issue with Tortoise as it is IE's security model.
Every File dialog loads Explorer, which in turn will load Tortoise,
and then that activity looks to Windows like something from the web is
attempting to look at something on your computer.

I don't recall whether there's a way to make IE/Windows behave well here.
