I sort of had that notion. That's what I've always been told anyway :)

Any special network communications. I would assume simple TCP?

Yeah, I was considering those two and the audio driver. But I suppose
TSVN isn't playing any audio when I expand the node in repo browser.
Hmm. What about the plink dialog? Does that attempt to play a sound.

Another odd perspective on this issue is that I have encountered
something similar for other operations with TSVN (like checkout). But
this is fixable by pressing ctrl+alt+delete and then escape to take me
back to the desktop. The repo-browser situation isn't affected by this
trick.

So all in all I'm having a real problem figuring out what could be wrong
here... Identifying the misbehaving driver doesn't seem easy either, so
I guess (assuming all instances of the similar problems have same cause)
the key may very well be to what TSVN does. After pressing
ctrl+alt+delete and alt+tab some times I get the plink dialog *below*
the repo-browser - maybe that's a hint of something?

Any kind of debug-logging mode or anything would be interesting. I
appreciate any help here, since dell isn't too helpful (just occurred
that there might be some dell software/drivers running in kernel space
... hmmm).
