Occasionally I forget about this and use the regular "update" TSVN command instead, getting a huge amount of unwanted updates to my external paths.

The update command has no options. It does not take any settings from
the Update-to-revision dialog and just updates everything. Doing
anything else would be confusing and dangerous to most users as they
would assume they are getting a full update when in fact there might
be some sticky setting they had forgotten about.

If you want to avoid doing a regular update, remove that item from
your top level context menu and put Update-to-revision there instead.
You can even remove the update command from the context menu entirely
if it worries you.
