Re: TSVNCache.exe opens filehandles

Perhpas the TSVN crew could add an option to TSVNCache to have it dump all filehandles?

This could even be callable from the commandline

    c:\src\fuzzle> tsvncache --disable
    .... do some command line work here ...
    c:\src\fuzzle> tsvncache --enable

[Or even as two new exes: tsvncacehenable and tsvncachedisable if that's easier.]

which could then be added to build scripts to prevent problems and could be
made a link somewhere for people who are having access problems with other drives.

You can, of course, just turn off the icons, but I personally like them.

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??
