Of course.

I'm not ruling out the possibility that some repository-related artifact
is causing this anomaly. Meaning, I'm not sure if it's the age of the
repository or dependent on which version of Subversion (or TSVN) the
repository was created with or if it's somehow related to the age of the
working copy. The only logical reason I can come up with for the
strange behavior is either Repository or Working Copy age/version
related. The age/version is really the only difference in my
repositories as most of them share an identical layout and are checked
out the same way.

Since the working copy comes from the repository, it could be that
repositories or working copies initially created with older versions
have some minor hiccup that the cache doesn't like and isn't able to
handle just quite right. These are, of course, only uneducated theories
since I'm not familiar with the code. However, my observations are
based on the local knowledge that I have of my repositories/working
copes and how they were created/used.

I mention this just to point out that my usage of the term repository
wasn't totally incorrect. I did mean to use the term "working copy" and
  thus to keep my crazy theories to myself but since you called me on my
mistake, I thought it best to explain what I (unintentionally) meant.
Maybe it'll spark something for somebody else and they can see a similar

Yes I have a small one but no I can't send it. It contains private data
so I can't provide it. Removing the private data would be removing 99%
of the files and so that seems rather pointless. However, if I can
locate a working copy containing less important data, then I will send
it for analysis.

No, the working copy is small; it doesn't even contain directories. It
contains only 14 files (executable, DLL, and a few text-format files
like XML). I only have one large working copy and ironically enough, I
think it works just fine. All the rest of my working copies are small,
most have a trunk/tag directory structure with only a couple files in
the trunk directory. Some of these have tags and some do not but all
told I probably don't have more than 10 or 15 files in any of the
numerous repositories/working copies I have like that. Most of these
work fine but there are one or two that don't.

Like I said, there's no discernible pattern to which working copies will
work right and which won't. If I can figure out anything more I will
definitely mention it but trying to diagnose it is like trying to thread
a needle with a rope.
