Windows Explorer has slowdown issues with that number of files in a
directory anyway, and then you add TSVN on top of that, which has to do
a check on every file to see if it is in source control or not. Our
solution here in that case was to move the files that are not in source
control elsewhere. Then Explorer and TSVN are both very responsive.
