Well, it's not so bad really, but the Check for Modifications window only checks one folder (recursively).

We work over several folders with quite a lot of files, so if i check for modifications on the root folder of the repository (keeping open the CM window as you proposed) this will check everything and the performance is slow.

It wouldn't have to poll the server regularly, just ask the server when you enter a folder under SVN or whenever you press F5 (for example, no need to be definitely this key, just related to "update" in windows).

This feature could also be configurable, i mean, if you want it you mark a check box in Tortoise settings, if not, don't use it.

Thanks you all for your answers
