I think that explains it:
To fetch the status, Subversion has to *write* some files inside the
.svn directory. If it can't do that, then the 'svn status' call fails.
Since the cache can't know whether that's a temporary issue (this
usually only happens during other svn operations on the same working
copy) or a permanent one, it tries to fetch the status over and over
again until it succeeds - since your drive is readonly, that will
*never* succeed and therefore the cache ends up in an endless loop.

But why do you need to show the status on a readonly working copy
anyway? Just exclude it from showing the overlays.
