file Locking under Windows

From: Thomas Heckel <thomas.heckel_at_gmx.net>

Hello,

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.4.3, Build 8645 - 32 Bit , 2007/02/04 09:40:57
under Windows XP (Version 5.1.2600).
I have some trouble with TortoiseSVN which I can't solve:

Everytime I try to umount a disc volume TSVNCache.exe has locked the
Root-directory of the volume letter altough it doesn't contain and never
contained a SVN-managed directory. There was also any interactive access
through the Explorer-Interface of TortoiseSVN by me. This file lock of
TortoiseSVN prevents a safe unmount.

Mounting and unmounting disc volumes is a common task on my system
because I use virtual disc software (e.g. http://www.truecrypt.org/). At
the moment I by-pass this issue by unlocking the volume manually
(http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/). Then I'm able to do a safe unmount
of the volume.

I don't know if this helps but I want to point out that I had a similiar
issue of preventive application file locking under windows some times
ago from other applications such as OpenOffice.org
(http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=21747).

Can you help me solving this issue?

Thanks in advance,
 Thomas Heckel
