commit in a folder scans files outside that folder

Thank you very much for TortoiseSVN. It is a great product.

I have a subversion working copy whose root directory is "mcarter".
I open the "mcarter\personal\Driving" folder in a Windows File Explorer window.
I right-click on the empty space in the right pane of that window, and select "SVN Commit..." from the pop-up menu.
(The attached file shows a screenshot of me doing this.)
There are no changed files in that folder, so there should be nothing to commit.
However, after a few seconds of churning, the "Commit - TortoiseSVN" dialog box becomes populated with a large list of changed files, all of which are _outside_ the directory that I'm currently exploring. The files listed are in parent and sibling directories.
When I click "OK" in the commit dialog box, those files are committed.
I expected that committing in a folder would only commit changes in that folder. Instead, it seems to commit changes in parent and other directories.

Alternatively, if I right-click on a folder icon in the Windows File Explorer window and select "SVN Commit..." from the pop-up menu, the behavior is correct: only changes in that folder are shown in the resulting commit dialog box.

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.7.1, Build 22161 - 64 Bit, 2011/10/21 22:51:59
Subversion 1.7.1,
apr 1.4.5
apr-utils 1.3.12
neon 0.29.6
OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011
zlib 1.2.5

My system is Windows 7 64-bit.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions to help solve this problem.

Thank you!
