RE: TSVNCache.exe and Windows Explorer

The problem has been ongoing. There was a "nightly build" at one point that
seemed to fix the problem. However, as soon as I upgraded to a release
build past that build # the problem came back.

If you go into the windows task manager and see the TSVNCache process with a
lot of threads (< 9 is typical and ok. I've seen the count over 200.) kill
the process and let it restart. If the problem comes right back, or
explorer hangs, restart your computer. The other solution is to disable the
cache entirely. (I find it handy enough that I usually just consign myself
to killing the process and rebooting every few days.)

I've thought about volunteering to try to track down and fix the bug, but I
don't even know what language TortoiseSVN is written in, or what tools are
needed. Often, the time needed to get a newbie developer up and going on a
project is more than it would take an experienced team member to complete
the task. Thus, I hesitate to take up someone's time when I'm unlikely to
be able to provide much help over the long term.

Subject: TSVNCache.exe and Windows Explorer

Two of my TSVN users (on XP) have problems with Windows explorer being
extremely slow (30 seconds or longer to change directories). The hard
drive light practically solid the whole time. This happens with both
versioned and non-versioned folders.

Task manager does not show anything untoward with TSVNCache.exe (i.e.
CPU and memory usage is normal) - yet if I kill this process windows
explorer springs back into life and is fully responsive.

Both users had version 1.4.8.12137 installed, although I tried going
back to an earlier version on one machine with no luck.

The archives show someone had a similar problem with version 1.2.0 a few
years back, but I didn't see any concrete resolution.

I have tried excluding overlays on all folders (c:\*) and including just
the working copy folder (c:\vc\*) - but this doesn't appear to help.

Any ideas?
