Windows Explorer Exception after TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 Upgrade

After upgrading to TortoiseSVN 1.5.3 (from 1.4.5), when I

right click on any folder in Windows Explorer, I receive an

exception dialog box. When I click the cancel button the

dialog box reappears and I repeat this process four

additional times until the exception dialog box disappears

and Windows Explorer exits.


I uninstalled 1.5.3, restarted my PC, opened Windows

Explorer and could then right click any folder or file and

get the normal Windows pop-up menu (expand, file finder,

cut, copy, etc.). I then reinstalled 1.5.3 and retested. My

results were the same as before getting an exception box

when right-clicking a folder.


I again uninstalled 1.5.3, restarted my PC, reinstalled 1.4.5,

restarted my PC, and opened Windows Explorer. Right

clicking on any folder now works normally.


I have had to get back to real work and further debugging

will need to wait. One idea is to incrementally update

toward 1.5.3 and determine which version causes this



My OS is Windows XP Pro w/SP2.
