I did what you specified. Is there a way to log the output viewed in the debug window to a file?

After making the registry change and killing TSVNCache.exe, here's what I see:

The status icon says "Cached Directories: 6536; Watched paths: 5"

For about 15 minutes after killing TSVNCache I watched lots of "Crawling directory..." and "Invalidating and refreshing folder" messages scroll by. Then it seemed to become satisfied that nothing else needed to be done, and quiesced. After a few minutes there was a flurry of "Invalidating and refreshing folder..." messages for a path I hadn't changed. When I browse around my working copy with Windows Explorer, without changing anything, it seems to induce TSVNCache to crawl hundreds of folders near where I'm browsing. Then, after a short delay, there's another flurry of invalidations on folders it just invalidated a few minutes ago. Without a log file recording what's in the cache window it's hard to demonstrate this, however.

I'm using the "Include paths" facility with all disks un-selected to limit caching to a specific set of paths.

Is this normal behavior?
