Usability enhancement to merge from combo to exclude current branch.

I am using TortoiseSVN version 1.8.8, Build 25755 - 64 Bit, with SVN 1.8.10
on Windows 7 64bit.

It is great that Tortoise remembers the last repo selected in the merge from
combo. In my use case, I am often moving patches between two major version
branches. So I go in and merge from A to B. Later I need to merge from B
to A. So I click on the folder for A and select merge. When the dialog
appears, A is selected. In this case, it would be better to select the most
recent 'from folder' that is not equal to the current one being merged into.
A can still appear in the list, but B gets selected instead.

I hope I've explained that enough.
