Note for the OP: if you've got ASP.NET projects (which are the only ones
that need this setting -- WinForms projects don't) then just leave it on
all the time. You'll have to re-checkout any working copies you made
with the setting off, but that's not especially difficult.

Question for the devs: is it the Explorer process or the TSVNCache
process that you need to update the environment for?

If it's the Explorer process, then you should be able to broadcast the
'environment changed' message and it will reload the environment,
removing the need for a restart.

If it's the TSVNCache process, then you ought to be able to just kill it
when this setting changes and it should restart with the updated
environment (although that relies on whoever is restarting it having
already updated its environment).
