TSVNCache process eating all the available CPU

Summary: I'm have been using SUBST drives for the root of my main WCs for a
while with TSVN1.4.3. After upgrading to 1.5, TSVNCache eats all of the
available CPU. Excluding SUBST drives from the Icons Overlay menu solves the

I have been running 1.4.3 for some time and everything was running smoothly. It
is quite a typical setup, but I am using SUBST drives as a shorthand for my WC
of the trunk and release branch of our product. For that to work, i had to ask
tortoise exclude my C: drive and include both drives I: and K: so that they
don't get scanned twice (that's what I understood).

This was working perfectly. However, TSVN has been advising me to update to the
latest version for some time and, seeing on the website that "TortoiseSVN 1.5
[...] is considered the current stable and "best" release", I decided to give it
a go.

The install went well, and everything looks perfect now. Except my Task Manager
which reports that one of my 2 virtual cpus (hyperthreading) is under a 100%
load due to TSVNCache.exe. I did reboot when requested so that is not the
problem. I tried a couple of things, which did not help, but I noticed that the
problem disappears if I exclude my SUBST drives from the Icons Overlay menu.

OS information:
Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP2

The problematic TSVN Icons Overlay config that used to work:

The TSVN Icons Overlay config that works:

A FileMon output shows that it loops on files in the first WC it finds. All file
accesses and ok, but once for each folder an error occurs when looking for
dir-props. Maybe it's normal for backwards compatibility, maybe it is a problem
with my WC. I will paste an example here:
12:59:21 PM TSVNCache.exe:3176 FASTIO_QUERY_OPEN
C:\Home\dev\soir\trunk\CodeSource\Cmdlets\Admin\.svn\dir-props NOT FOUND
Attributes: Error

Hope I gave enough info to help you pinpoint the problem. I hope I can use my
SUBST drives again soon!
