Incessant crashing on Windows 8 x64, all of a sudden

All of a sudden (within the past few weeks), I have begun experiencing
incessant crashing in TSVN.

Every time I perform an Update operation, the update works as expected.
But as soon as I click "OK" to dismiss the dialog, TSVN crashes.

Dialog title: TortoiseSVN x64
Dialog text: TortoiseSVN x64 has stopped working
Dialog subtext: Sending crash data... (with an activity indicator bar)

After a few minutes of "Sending crash data", I receive a little
blue/white/red dialog.

Dialog title: SendRpt: Error
Dialog text: failed to extract stack

Not much has changed on this machine. I use Avast antivirus, and have
for the past several years, and have never had problems with TSVN.

In the way of troubleshooting, I have tried uninstalling and
reinstalling the latest version, but the result is the same. I have also
tried expunging TSVNs registry entries between uninstalling and
reinstalling, but no change.

Also -- and I don't know if the problem is related or not -- whenever I
try to checkout a working copy from a repository that uses svn+ssh, I
receive the "TortoisePlink has stopped working" dialog six different
times. If I dismiss all of the dialogs, the Update window displays the

Checkout from svn+ssh://mysite.com/svn/myrepo, revision HEAD, Fully
recursive, Externals included
Unable to connect to a repository at URL
To better debug SSH connection problems, remove the -q option from 'ssh'
in the
 [tunnels] section of your Subversion configuration file.
Network connection closed unexpectedly

There was a thread back on August 12, 2013, "latest tortoiseplink.exe
crash on fresh windows 8 64bit", but it sounds like my problem is
different (though perhaps related), as I do not use Kaspersky.

I'm not sure what to try next. Are there more advanced debugging steps
that I can undertake?

Should I start disabling other shell extensions until the crashing
stops? Maybe there's a conflict?

Thanks for any insight!
