Thanks for the reply.
The repository URL in the commit dialog is for the root of my WC, _not_ the folder that I'm exploring when I commit.
Hang on a sec... Let me go check something... [time passes]...
Aha! That was it!
It turns out that if the explorer window was started with a "/root,[folderPath]" command line option, as I was doing, the problem occurs.
If, instead, the explorer window was started with just a "[folderPath]" command line option, the problem does not occur.
This problem started when I moved from Windows XP to Windows 7.
Apparently, it was not due to a TortoiseSVN defect so much as Microsoft changing (in Windows 7) the behavior of explorer.exe when the "/root,[folderPath]" option is passed.
Thanks for the help.
My issue is resolved.
