Explorer still slow - version 1.5.9

With TortoiseSVN installed, whenever I first open Windows Explorer, it takes
about 3 minutes to finish opening. I presume this is because I have some
network drives that are not currently available (their VPN is not
connected). (I also use Virtual CloneDrive for ISO images.)

In TortoiseSVN settings, for "Drive Types", I've only selected "Fixed
Drives". However, that does not help!

From older discussions and support comments, I understand that Tortoise is
surveying each drive to determine its type - whether it is a network drive,
RAM drive, etc.

Could this approach please be changed?

Another approach that should be quite workable would be to simply list the
current (or all possible) drives in the "Settings" dialog, and give the user
the option of selecting which drives to do the overlays on.

Showing all possible drives (A - Z) may be better, so that intermittent
drives (eg. USB keys) could be marked on or off, even if
they are not currently available.
