TSVNCache shouldn't lock removable drives

I've got a removable USB drive. I've noticed that if I start up Windows
with the drive plugged in from the start, it won't let me safely remove the
I just discovered (using UnLocker http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/) that
TSVNCache is the bugger to blame for not letting me disconnect the drive.
For some reason it holds a lock on the root F:\ directory even though the
exe itself is located in C:\Program Files. After using UnLocker to remove
TSVNCache's lock on the drive, I'm able to successfully use the Safely
Remove Hardware option to remove the drive.

Is TSVNCache intentionally locking that drive, or is it perhaps forgetting
to call a fclose somewhere?
