I can confirm this behavior also, using TSVN 1.6.1 in Windows XP SP3. Not much to add, yet: it has only happened once until now. Process "explorer.exe" became dead slow and all SVN repositories overlays were not showing properly.

For others experiencing this, note that this behavior may give a (false) sense that the machine hanged, as "explorer.exe" is also responsible for the taskbar and start menu; other processes shouldn't be affected; restarting "explorer.exe" didn't help. :-)

Well, that may be the case for me too (I didn't try to kill "TSVNCache.exe", though), but it would sound like a bit of a coincidence...?

After thinking a bit about this, I did update my (Realtek) network driver through Windows update a couple of days ago -- may it be the guilty?

I'll be aware about this, thanks for the drivers tip Stefan. ;-)
