People had big problems with TSVNCache locking the drive root. So now
the cache only opens watcher handles on working copies. Since it does
not know the working copy root until the explorer asks for the status of
it, it watches every wc folder it knows as the top folder.
Once you show the overlays of your working copy root, the handles to the
subfolders will be released and only the wc root will have an open handle.
