I use 4.3a and it does not appear to work for me. I've tested it
today to be sure and I'm positive that it is not working the way (I
think) this thread implies it should.

What I believe this thread says is that when I try to unmount a TC
mounted drive, TC tells windows to tell processes to go away (if
possible), then it unmounts. (Very short, non-technical, summary).

It does not work that way for me. I've tried the unmount (from TC)
without kill TSVNCache. I get a prompt saying that processes have the
drive locked, should the unmount be forced. I say 'No' at the 'Force
Unmount' prompt and then tried again - I still get the Force unmount.
I know that TSVNCache is the only process with a lock (I use Unlocker
to look).

It's no problem, I'm in the habit of using 'Unlocker', I just
right-click the drive, send to unlocker, tell it to kill the TSVNCache
process and everything unmounts fine.

So, does this correct behavior work for others? How? Must I mount
the TC archive as Removable media? I don't really want to for
performance reasons. I know I can exclude it from the caching in the
TSVN options, but I like the icons (and it's not that painful for me
to us Unlocker). I'm curious if it's just me.
