UpdateCheckURL not working as expected

We followed the recipe at http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-admins-upgradecheck.html how to ensure that update checks look for a version provided by our company, so that users don't update by mistake. The check works as expected, with the one exception, that the URL we have provided in the file "tsvn-version.txt" is not used, but the default URL registered in the product. I have checked that the registry entry is correct (HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN\UpdateCheckURL).

The file contents of tsvn-version.txt currently is:
New customized version of SVN Tools for <company> is available.

So we want that the user visits the confluence page and looks there for the current version. Previously, we have provided as URL the download location for the new binary to install, but that did not work either.

I have used the information at Microsoft what the registry entries mean: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa371168(VS.85).aspx

Our content in the registry is:
* Registry: <some text without blanks>
* Root: 1 (for HKCU)
* Key: Software\TortoiseSVN
* Name: UpdateCheckURL
* Value: https://<company>.com/download/subversion/tsvn-version.txt
* Component: Some key from the drop-down-list.

The file is found correctly, because the update dialog knows that the version is the current one (see screenshot below).

I don't have any idea what could be wrong here, and I have searched on the internet and did not find any resource beside the doc page at the beginning of this report. So what is our fault, where are we going wrong?

Thank you for your help
