Re: TSVNCache.exe opens filehandles

I've also had this problem - I cannot run my build scripts which use the
command line SVN because TSVN cache opens handles inside the .svn dirs
while command line SVN is working on them.

To temporarily keep the TSVN cache from restarting, keep all instances
windows explorer closed (including those that appear in, for instance
file->open dialogs). Even for only 15 minutes at a time, this is a
frustrating work around, does anyone know a better one??
