Yes, ofcourse, but it didn't make any difference on my system (P4,
Win2000, 1GB RAM).

Shell icon cache corruption happens with other programs too, but since
TSVN makes heavy use of icon overlaying (more than any other program I
know) it happens very often. Microsoft just didn't design the overlay
system for such massive usage.

For a nice discussion about the Shell Icon Cache, see:


This site also explains the steps needed to force a rebuild of the
cache. As I've said before I've created my own little piece of software
that does this.

TSVN already has a piece of code that, with minor changes, can rebuild
the cache. I don't remember the exact file it was in, though.
