I can't explain it except to say that two days before I posted that original
message, I was notified that there was an update. I updated. Then on the
day that I posted that message, I was notified yet again. That was how the
message dialog earned the description "obnoxious." I don't know how those
release dates correspond to the days when that message dialog pops up.

If the version check is weekly, then why am I seeing it again right now? I
obviously saw the dialog just a couple of days ago, or I wouldn't have
posted that first message. I just right-clicked in an explorer window and
chose "SVN Checkout..." from the shell menu, and I got the same "newer
version" dialog.

I notice, however, that when I did it again (maybe about 60 seconds later)
that I didn't get the dialog. So the version check is definitely more
frequent than weekly, but less frequent than 60 seconds. I'd lay decent
odds that it's probably daily.

I guess I'll just disable the message. It's not a great option, though,
since (like I said) it is a good idea to keep users running up-to-date
versions. It would be nice if that could be done less obnoxiously.
