I have to admit that I'm not very familiar with pools, but I understand
what they're used for and how to use them. I don't know how they're
internally handled though.

So I changed TSVN so that the pool(s) I use are cleared after each
command to make sure that any remaining filehandles get closed.
But - (there's always a "but" :) ) since TSVN already did clear the
pools (those which weren't destroyed after use) right *before* calling
another command there should only be a constant amount of open
filehandles. But Lübbe told that whenever he's refreshing the explorer
view there are two _more_ open filehandles.
So that means to me that there *is* a real leak somewhere in the code
and not just an open handle which gets closed with by the pool.

Or maybe I just don't see where I'm keeping a pool in TSVN without
clearing it regularly. I'll have a closer look at it tomorrow - maybe
it's just too late in the evening to really concentrate on that task.
