FS#188 - Cache prevents drives from being ejected properly, revisted.

From: Wawb DC <wawbdc_at_gmail.com>

 Heya folks --

I use TrueCrypt to mount an encrypted USB drive that I carry around with me.
With TortoiseSVN, the Cache.exe will open a handle to something in the
mounted file system, which prevents me from dismounting the encrypted
volume, which prevents me from removing the USB drive. I find myself hunting
for tvsncache.exe and killing it through the Task Manager each day as a
precursor to my Remove The USB Drive Routine.

Could be the mount hides the fact that the filesystem is a removable one,
else I would request that the cache not hook into removable media. If'n
that's the case can there be some check-box list of, "Don't Cache Into This
FileSystem," in the options, or a "Don't Cache" option, or a "Stop Current
Caching" option, to make it easier to shut down TSVN and get my drive out?

I see where FS#188 addressed and "implemented" a fix, but as of the very
latest version, this is occurring again. If Windows doesn't give enough time
for stopping whatever crawling is going on, would it be possible to TSVN to
properly stop doing what it's doing, via user interaction ("Click Here To
Stop The Caching"), rather than having to kill the caching process?

I am not on the mailing list, please CC me in follow-ups. Much obliged

Cheers,
