Hmm, you have a problem, you're using processmonitor.
Do you also hang out a light sensor, then measure the voltage it returns
to find out whether the sun is shinging outside instead of simply looking?

Sorry for the bad analogy, but seriously: why don't people just take a
look at the docs or even the available dialogs?

Hu? TSVN does *not* keep locks on the recycle bin. Even the TSVNCache
process does not even watch the recycle bin folder (special handling of
those paths).

Just read the docs, or open the settings dialog for once. No need to do
a big analysis (with completely wrong assumptions).

the recycle bin is not not scanned. It is simply *used* (yes, it's that
simple - nothing complicated going on).

Also there's an option to turn this off (if your bin is already full,
then it will take a while - just clean your recycle bin and it will be
fast again):
Settings dialog->General->dialogs 1->"use recycle bin when reverting"
