That's not only a problem of TSVNCache. Just right-click on a folder
which has such links and open the explorer property dialog. Windows
itself will recurse indefinitely when trying to find the total amount
of bytes the folder uses.

So you just should *never* access a working copy checked out *on* a
linux machine from windows. Check out your own working copy on windows
instead.
