Re[3]: Tortoise 1.6.1 kills file explorer

  I'm using 1.6.1 with a debug option to show the tray icon for
  TSVNCache. Sometimes I notice that it takes about half a second for
  the Total Commander to display contents of a versioned folder (no
  network mappings are used). When I notice that, I try to
  double-click the tray icon to see if there is a crawling activity in
  the background, but the double-click does not work: the crawling
  window does not show up. If I already have it open, then it behaves
  like a hung application (does not repaint itself, all white).
  Right-clicking the tray icon does not bring up the "Exit" context
  menu. All these signs tell me that the process is hung in some sort
  of lock (CPU is idle, no tight loop), and the folder browsing delay
  is just the result of waiting for the overlay icons request. When
  the request times out, the folder contents are shown. The delay may
  be greater in the Explorer than it is in the Total Commander, I
  didn't check that. Killing the TSVN cache solves the problem.

  I don't know what kind of activity or inactivity triggers the bug,
  but I can tell that I don't logoff my workstation for weeks, and I
  don't run a screensaver (just turn off the monitor manually). My WCs
  are all on the local hard drives, although mounted as the TrueCrypt
  volumes, but I never had this problem with TSVN 1.5.6 (the TrueCrypt
  version never changed since then). Some repos are also on local
  drives (file://), others are remote (https://).

  I am familiar with the SysInternals tools and am willing to provide
  additional information, but I don't have any C compilers/debuggers
