I doubt that this is TSVN that's causing the crash.
If it were TSVN, you would see the TSVN crash report dialog showing up,
not the default exception dialog.
Also, if it were TSVN that's crashing, we would have received many, many
more reports about this.

But on the off chance that it is TSVN that's causing the crash:
* open a console window
* type: TortoiseProc.exe /command:repostatus /path:"path\to\folder"
if that dialog shows an error or crashes as well, then the working copy
you just checked out is already corrupt - which then would indicate a
problem with your harddrive or a "security app" messing with the files.

if the TSVN dialog shows up properly, then most likely it's another
shell extension that you have installed that's causing the crash. There
are many of those around and some of them can't deal with
file/foldernames that consist only of an extension and no name part
(like the ".svn" folder).
