If the explorer hangs, then that has nothing to do with SSH or any other
repository access. TSVN does *not* access the repository from the
explorer at all (the required libs aren't even linked to the shell
extension part).

If your explorer hangs, try killing the TSVNCache.exe process. If that
doesn't work, then it's not TSVN that stalls the explorer. If you can't
kill TSVNCache.exe (it's still there after you kill it), then hurry and
buy a new harddrive, because it will fail completely very soon.

If you can't kill the TortoiseProc.exe process (as before: it's still
shown in the task manager after you've killed it), then you have a
network problem, most likely some DNS issues.
See here for some details why programs can't be killed:
