[TSVN] Tortoise/Cache hanging Explorer?

From: Mark Phippard <MarkP_at_softlanding.com>

I just updated my personal build to r2774, which is HEAD at the time I
write this. Prior to this, I had not done a build since r2732 (Feb. 24).

My build is tweaked a bit and I have my own installer, but to date, this
has never led to a problem. I mention it just because that is always a

Anyway, I added the new stuff to my installer so that the cache is
launched at startup. The first thing I noticed is that Explorer does not
finish coming up. I get the start bar painted but none of the icons on my
desktop and I cannot do anything. If I open Process Explorer, the cache
is the only process running under Explorer and it appears to be idle. If
I Kill the cache process it immediately restarts but Explorer also appears
to do something. If I repeat this around 25-30 times, eventuallty
Explorer completes starting and the system is responsive again. However,
I still cannot open any Explorer windows.

There was a checkin today (r2772) to put the cache into the task tray.
Could that be causing the problem? I also see there were changes to
save/load the cache from a file. Could there be a problem there? That
change has been in longer so I assume it would have shown up in a nightly.

Anyway, I will investigate more on my end. I just wanted to report this
before it potentially gets into a nightly.
