No, none of our working copies are on a network share.
Some have their folders junctioned to a separate physical drive, but not in
all cases where this stall happens.

That's understandable.
I've seen the TSVNCacheWindow stop scrolling during each of these 5 minute
stalls - when I know it has more folders to crawl.
Is there anything that could cause TSVNCache itself to block and then not
respond to queries? Windows API?
