What about SHGetFileInfoA in LoadIconsAndTypesThread(), file
src\modules\srfile\fileexistsdlg.c ?
And *that* API will definitely load the overlay extension.
I'm sure there are other places where you load the extensions.

right at the top we check whether the process name is "explorer.exe"
and bail out if it isn't.
Ok, that of course means the dll's are already loaded, but they're not used.
Problem is: the *shell* loads our dll, and we can't tell the shell not to.

My guess would be that you don't cleanly free some resources you get
with some shell API call.
And as I just discovered: I'm right.
In your function LoadIconsAndTypesThread(), you don't free/destroy the
icon handle after the call to SHGetFileInfoA - since that API also
loads the overlay icons and applies them to the returned icon handle,
you of course get a memory leak.

I don't really know what exactly BoundsChecker tells you about the
memory leak, but I *know* that there is no such leak in the tsvn shell
Before you accuse others of bad coding, you really should first check
your own code.
