   A similar thing happens to me and it has been happening since I
installed TortoiseSVN 1.4.6 I believe...

   In my case the explorer process goes into an infinite 'active loop'
and uses up as much processing power as it can get its grubby little
hands on. Special Windows keyboard shortcuts still work though. The
workaround I use is to start the task manager (Ctrl+Shift+ESC) and kill
and restart the explorer process but I'm still hoping someone will clean
up this bug. :-(

   I have never found enough time to go and test this issue in more
detail but my notebook goes into hybernation a lot so that might have
something to do with it. I also use substed drives whose roots point to
my sandboxes, but I believe this problem was happening even when I did
not have such drives.

   Is there any kind of logging that could be turned on so I could
collect the log and post it to this mailing list so it can help someone
debug the issue?

   Hope this helps.

   Best regards,
