Hmmm. After an overnight backup, where I xcopy files from D: (with all my
development folders including SVN checkouts for various open source
projects) to a duplicate filesystem on the C: drive, "Mem usage" had
risen to 178MB. VM was at the same sort of level.

Ah, that's pointed me at the exclude list for the cache. I've added
"branches" and "tags" in the big repository to the list. I presume that \
is the separator character (it would help if there was a dialog box for
selecting exclude/include folders).
