I saw this problem with another product + TSVN, but frankly, I characterise
it as a bug in the other product, and indeed the authors had no idea why
the stack had been set so small and agreed it was a bug (and fixed it).

If you run the appropriate tools across something like windows\system32,
you'll find that the smallest stack size in general use is 256K. Of
course, this value is only a limit, and doesn't represent memory which is
immediately allocated at application start-up.

Personally, I don't think TSVN should make changes to avoid this
problem. (Of course, if the shell-extension only used the external cache,
it would be much simpler and probably wouldn't use nearly so much stack,
but that's another point.)
