Seriously? You can't mean that I should consult the source to Tortoise SVN before using one of its functions, can you?

Yes, I navigated the tree hierarchy in the export window to the destination directory and the export was successful.

For example

there are a number of large files. When the export works, it takes 15-30 seconds. When I just type R:foo into the Folder field, it completes instantly.

Sure I do! Open a command prompt and type R: and pwd. I can see that it is at the root of the share.

I don't think so, no. The exported files would either be in the directory R:\foo, if the cur. directory of R: is root (it is), or in a folder called foo off the current working directory, if not root. There are no other options, I think.

I wonder, has anyone else tried this as I described to see what their results might be?
