RE: Svn crashing windows

I've been using SVN 0.21 on an XP machine, and I haven't seen any problems
related to crashing... though our repository isn't quite as big as yours.

However, I do develop Windows Device Drivers for a living, and I can say
that there are many 3rd party manufacturers out there who don't get it
right, and will cause these types of problems. There is something that you
can do though.

First of all, start up the driver verifier (open the run windows and type in
'verifier' and hit enter). Follow the dialog box suggestion and set it up
so that you are verifying every driver on your system (standard
setting/verify all drivers). You'll then need to reboot your computer for
the real fun to begin. This utility will sit on top of every driver in the
system and validate that it is indeed following the guidelines that Windows
has set up. If they don't, it will bluescreen and will generally pinpoint
the driver at fault. I would either upgrade to the latest version of the
driver, or find one that is digitally signed by Microsoft. Ones that are
signed are much more likely to work properly.

Good luck!
