They pile up as Tortoise activity progresses. Why is still a mystery, it doesn't _appear_ to be a logic flaw in TortoisePLink!

This sounded really familiar, so I did some digging.


But in fact, it's not quite the same problem, although it may be
related. As I understand it, issue #3408 is about GUI clients leaving
SSH processes open on the client machine while the client is running,
but you're seeing problems with a GUI client being terminated too early,
leaving SSH processes running on the server?

 From what I can see, #3408 was fixed on trunk but never made the
backport, and the issue is still open. So maybe the fix for #3408 will
fix your problem once it makes it to release in 1.7.

Then again, it may not fix your problem at all. This does look like a
problem with subversion proper, rather than TortoiseSVN, so you should
probably take this to the svn users list.
