Stefan - thanks for the reply. I've been using XP since it came out (sad but that's work) and I've never seen anything like this apart from with TSVN.

It only ever happens in a TSVN versioned directory. Symptoms:

* pop-up context menu initially displays as all grayed-out
* mouse cursor moves very slowly: jerks on centimetre every three seconds
* without mouse, moving the focus up/down the context menu using the arrow keys, it is one movement every three seconds, or so, and buffered too
* during this problem, and even at other times, TSVN icon overlays are often out of date even after a refresh.

I wonder if TSVN is trying to do something it shouldn't (cf. my C:\cygwin\bin\ssh.exe post just now) and the denial is causing the delay? Or is it trying to talk to the SVN server more than necessary? Or....?

I must say TSVN is otherwise a fantastic beast, and these problems have only been around for a week or so out of six weeks TSVN use, but it does make the software virtually unusable. If there's any info I can provide to help, please do let me know.
