Crash when viewing log with caching on

TortoiseSVN RC2 crashes occasionally on "View log" when log caching is
turned on. Unfortunately, I can't be more specific than that: I can't
find a discernible pattern for what working copies don't work, and
what working copies do. There are a few consistent symptoms, though:

1. If a working copy is crashing, all of its subdirectories and files
also crash the view log. It appears that the crashing is repository-
wide.

2. TortoiseSVN always appears to be attempting to contact the server
and downloading the logs before a crash

3. If a working copy is crashing, the problem is can be reproduced100%

4. Turning off log caching fixes the problem 100%.

5. Disabling and then enabling log caching tends to fix problems. I
did it twice and it worked for all of the repositories that were
failing.

6. Log caching occasionally gets confused when a directory inside a
working copy points to a different repository. The result is that log
entries go missing, or apply to non-existent files/folders. This was
happening before TortoiseSVN started crashing; I haven't been able to
reproduce.

Overall, I think log caching might be a little flaky. I don't know if
this will help or not, but I'll be keeping a close eye on log caching
and reporting any other problems with it.

BTW, TortoiseSVN+Subversion 1.5 rocks! I can't wait till you guys do
the official release. :-)
