Where did you get that information from? A thread can set its priority
without having admin rights - the thread has full access to itself.
The threads in TSVNCache set their priorities themselves, so that's not
a problem at all.

There might be another problem here. How big is your working copy? Do
you have a virus scanner installed which might interfere with the cache?
Try to configure your vscanner so that it won't scan your working copies.
