That's pretty generous of you. Stefan's reply was flippant and
antagonistic. Fisher picked up on it - hence his defensive reply as well.

Yeah, that, and my offer to apply the CacheTrayIcon test in order to
gather more info. I'd have done it already but I'm not working on that
system today.

Whatever. I'm content to just blame it on email if you are.

Back to the topic at hand:

The working copy that is exhibiting this problem is *not* a network
mount. It's on the local HD, and it's a repo that I access/update
regularly. This problem had never manifested prior to the upgrade to
tsvn 1.4.4 (and the accompanying svn upgrade). At least, not to any such
degree that I noticed. Contrary to Fisher's experience, I'm able to
bring up the task manager and kill TSVNCache without much delay. When I
do so, any open folders that were frozen on the desktop immediately
recover and display their contents (they go blank and don't refresh when
the freeze hits).
