The shell extension (the desktop itself is part of explorer, so it
holds the shellex dll open and prevents it being upgraded), and if
there are changes to the interface with TSVNCache then the icon
overlays will be broken. And don't even think about reporting a
problem if you haven't rebooted.

OK it's annoying to have to reboot, but seriously, how often does a
new release come out that you can't reboot? MS security fixes usually
require it and they come out monthly.
