A crash at the end can mean many things, but if the crash reported can't
even extract the stack trace, then there's a big memory corruption going on.
Do you have any other dlls's that get loaded by every process?
Have a look at this list:
http://code.google.com/p/tortoisesvn/issues/list?can=1&q=label%3Acrashreport-answer&colspec=ID+Type+Status+Stars+Priority+Milestone+Owner+Summary&cells=tiles

maybe you find something there that you also have installed and what
might be the reason for those crashes?

Or if you can attach a debugger to it and get a crash dump file, you can
send that to me so I can analyze it.
