There is a hidden feature [1]: if you set the following setting in the
registry to 1, there will be nice TortoiseSVN icon in the tray area,
which allows to shutdown the TSVNCache gracefully. E.g. to free some
operating memory. I enable it on every computer where I install TSVN.

HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN\CacheTrayIcon
