when I read the "So, be nice to them." on the reporting bugs page, I had

Seriously: I think it is difficult for the average user to connect a
"hanging" TortoiseSVN dialog with a full recycler. An without that
connection, it is hard to look for a solution in settings dialog or user
manual.

I have a colleague here with the same problems who never found out that
the recycler is causing the trouble. So maybe some other hint for the
user could be found to make him aware that what first looks like
horrible TortoiseSVN performance really is terrible Windows performance,
with an easy, although not obvious solution.

Bye,
Carsten
