BUG: TSVNCache crashes

From: Per Salmi <per_at_litho.se>

We have found a problem regarding TSVNCache that is probably related to icon
If TSVN is installed at the same time as Windows Live Messenger 8.0 folder
sharing functionality is used the TSVNCache process crashes instantly when
any file operastion is initiated in Messenger folder sharing. For instance
drag an image file to a folder that is setup to be shared with a contact...
Crash... and a "send error report to Microsoft" is initiated.
As the problem occured in combination with Windows Live Messenger 8.0 which
is in beta testing I first communicated this problem to the Messenger team
who investigated it and came back with the following report:
"Thank you for reporting this problem. It sounds like the TortoiseSVN shell
extensions directly conflict with the Folder Sharing Shell extensions
installed by Messenger 8.0. I am unsure why TortoiseSVN fails ungracefully.
Unfortunately we will not be able to fix this in Folder Share or Messenger."

And then this:

"Investigate TortoiseSVN Shell Extension crash to fix it. Perhaps the OS
icon overlay maximum was reached (due to Sharing Folders also using icon
overlay slots) and TortoiseSVN did not gracefully handle it. That is just a
wild guess. I honestly have no idea."

So, is it possible that there is a bug in TSVN icon overlay handling that
causes the TSVNCache when another application that obviously also uses icon
overlays is activated? Maybe this problem can be reproduced with other
software using icon overlays too but I do not know a lot of other
applications using it. We have however reproduced it with 100% accuracy on 2
different machines.

The TSVNCache crash actually do occur every time either me or my contact
perform an action that results in a change of the shared folder status, and
this change is marked with a changed icon overlay on the shared

I am using the 1.3.1 build 5521 TSVN package.
