Yes. But the OP already has a partial checkout, using the "choose items"
dialog from the checkout or "update to revision" dialogs in TortoiseSVN.

The OPs problem, is that his partial checkout is converted automatically to
a fully recursive checkout, when he is only trying to add a single item to
his partial checkout.

The workaround is to re-specify every single piece of the sparse checkout
every time he modifies the checkout. This is not a very usable solution,
but as Stefan points out, there are usability concerns with fixing it.
