Don't really know how TSVN calls SVN libraries but, wouldn't be
enought to just check registry at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Environment and
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Environment and look for SVN_ASP_DOT_NET_HACK? At
least for W2K and above, all the environment variables are there, and
there would be one reboot less in our world ;)

I really don't use _SVN but maybe if there is no reboot involved,
(lazy) people with spare time (I think I saw one of them yesterday,
don't know where exactly :D) could think of trying it. If you have to
reboot... you know...

Best regards,
