The cache is cleared after a fairly short time. I'm not aware of any leaks
here, but that's not to say that there aren't any. You don't say what type
of memory you're monitoring, but my experience is that you often need to
monitor for a long time to see if something is a genuine leak.

It would be very hard to say with Explorer, because there might be all
sorts of 3rd-party code running in process.

The cache is intentionally very short-lived, and it's not really very big,
either. There is currently no strategy for intelligently invalidating the
cache, other than by time, so we couldn't use a disk version with any
confidence. I'm doubtful that TSVN's status cache is really a big user of
memory, though I haven't actually measured this.
