TSVN does not connect to that server by itself. Only if it's required by
your network setup.
Maybe because there's a wrong DNS entry pointing there, or your proxy
redirects there for some data, or you do authentication there or whatever.
But TSVN does *not* connect to any server you don't specify.

The only network connection TSVN does by itself is the update check,
downloading the file
https://svn.code.sf.net/p/tortoisesvn/code/trunk/version.txt and parsing
it. But only if you haven't disabled or redirected the update check.

If you have doubts, you can check the source code...
