I've seen it accessing things like C:\notes. It definitely shouldn't
be needing anything from there. Doesn't seem consistent though.
Sometimes it does, other times it has been accessing other (seemingly
random) folders on C:\. But not as bad as I first thought, since it
isn't crawling them all...
(And yes, I'm filtering on TSVNCache.exe...)
