In your TSVN settings, go to Look & Feel, check Check for Updates and
uncheck Check for Modifications. Checking the repository should never
be "automatic" (IMHO), it should require an explicit request, to limit
traffic to the server (and not cause trouble when the server isn't
available). This is the equivalent of svn st -u on the command line.
