TSVNCacheWindow locks up Explorer in 1.4.8

Hi all,

I've reported this problem with 1.4.6 but the problem alas still
persists in 1.4.8.

Here is my case:
Using 1.4.5 the TSVNCache works as expected eg it scans through our
local working copies of our versioned projects. We have about 5000-10000
files in our projects of different sorts in a hierarchical composition.

However, when I tried to upgrade to 1.4.8 by first uninstall previous
version, reboot, remove all local working copies from disks, install
1.4.8 and reboot.

Things did not work well when I logged back in. Explorer almost
immediately freezes and even killing explorer process does not cure this
freeze. Only by logging out which make the logout process waiting for
the TSVNCacheWindow process to die which it does not, but by killing it
in the logout process I can logout. And this mess continues when I login

First note: We as developers do NOT have administrator privileges, this
may be one warning bell because when I do login with administrator
privileges all is working well. This is not good news since our security
require users not to have such privileges.

Second note: I can jumpstart the 1.4.8 by removing all my user registry
entries concerning Tortoise and working copies and then get a new set
from our SVN server. This works as long as I do not restart my machine.
If I do so, well back to square 1. If I logout and back in no problems.

Third note: We use roaming profiles which are deleted whenever a user
logsout or restart the machine.

Fourth note: Although I can get 1.4.8 to work by disabling the cache, it
   feels that the whole point of the explorer integration subsides to
almost nothing then, the feedback you get from the overlay icons are
invaluable in my opinion.

Have anyone any ideas why the behavior of the cache have changed in such
dramatical way from 1.4.5? Is the forthcoming 1.5 version a better bet
than bashing my head in the wall with the 1.4. series?
