Thanks, Tobias and Simon (and Stefan) - this is all quite edifying.

After a bit of RTFM, I note that following the instructions to ONLY
scan a particular tree by having that in the Includes and unchecking
ALL drive types, all of the drive handles are now closed.

BUT, if I restart TSVNCache, the FOLDER overlays for any TSVN projects
in my tree no longer appear (contained files are fine). Adding the
"Fixed" drive type back immediately restores these overlays without a

So either this is not working properly, or I am misinterpreting the
doc and actually have to list EVERY drive that I DON'T want checked?
