Your productivity must be really low if you can manage to double it
just by moving your taskbar :-).

Jokes aside, that's a bad solution.
You can't go around telling people that they "need to adjust their
taskbar to vertical position - TortoiseSVN isn't compatible (or:
doesn't work well) with horizontal taskbars".

Good suggestion.
(As long as the icons doesn't get so nitty-gritty that it's
indiscernible that the windows belong to TSVN, I'd say.)
