TortoiseSVN using _svn even if installed without ASP.NET hack option

I played with the TortoiseSVN client.  For some of our ASP.NET projects it required to install a ASP.NET Hack while installing the client.

When we wanted to use the Eclipse plugin and no longer needed the _svn folder style created by the ASP hack I tried to uninstall the client and install again without the ASP.NET hack but to my surprise the client was creating _svn folders like earlier and no the required .svn folders.

While searching the devel user list I found that the TortoiseSVN client creates an environmental variable for the hack and we need to delete the environmental variable before installing the client without ASP.NET hack.
