Stefan, after doing a little more digging, I am eying that file near the
top of the call stack, "bdmpega64.acm", suspiciously.

When I search the Internet for that file, I see two results that stand-out:

1) A crash-report.com post that you made with the same file name, which
implies that this file has crashed TSVN for others.

2) A thread about Remote Desktop crashes that this file causes, which I
am also experiencing, but that I considered unrelated and irrelevant
until now.

The Remote Desktop crashing thread about this file states that the file
is usually part of Bandicam (never installed it) or oftentimes a video
game. Apparently, many games use this codec for in-game screen recording.

I have indeed installed a new game or two recently, which is probably
what is causing this. I will report back once I determine which game is
the culprit. I wouldn't spend any more of your time on this, as I can
probably find the solution myself.

Thanks again,

-Ben
