[TSVN] Possible bug in TSVNCache - network drive access

Hi all,

I've been trying to track down an explorer hang I've been having for
some time and I think I've found the culprit. I have a fairly large
working directory mapped as D:\codedb and all is well there. However,
once I've started browsing on my local network drives, explorer and
indeed any network file access seems very slow. I've been fiddling with
all the various configuration files, and then after a bit of
FileMon-ning, I think I've sussed it - TSVNCache seems to be hammering
my network! I have several working directories mapped from other PCs,
and once explorer sees one of these, I can see the TSVNCache.exe process
recursively gathering svn information from the drive. My explorer tends
to exhibit slowdown at this point.

I've never had network drive access turned on in the tortoise
configuration, so I wonder if TSVNCache uses this configuration setting,
or whether it just runs off looking for any .svn folders one might come
across, regardless of its location. Is this so - and if not, is it
possible to configure it to not check network folders?

On a possibly related note, some times I've had to kill the TSVNCache
process in order to get my explorer windows repainting again - this is
usually after I've browsed around on my network a bit first.

I'm using "TortoiseSVN 1.2.1, Build 3895" on a Windows 2000 SP4
machine. The network drive in question is a shared folder on a UNIX
machine using samba, mapped as drive X:\ on my windows box. The unix
machine has a separate working directory in x:\build\codedb.

If there's any more information needed in looking into this issue please
don't hesitate to ask! I hope I've followed the list etiquette

Kind regards, and keep up the excellent work,
