TortoiseSVNCache resource usage

First off: TortoiseSVN rocks. Thank you all for your hard work!

I'm having problems where regular usage of my computer is resulting in
occasional crashes (don't have a report zip file because that hasn't
happened for a while) but it is also having frequent runaway resource usage.

About every hour or two my computer will become extremely slow and the
TortoiseSVN process appears to be the culprit with very high usage of both
CPU and memory. I've gotten in the habit of routinely killing the process
(which seems to start itself again later). I'm not sure how large the
process gets anymore since I kill it early on in its life now. Previously,
when I was afraid to just end the process, I saw it grow to well over 500
megs of memory.

I'm using TortoiseSVN 1.6.6. I think the problems started for me when I
upgraded (but I don't remember my previous version).

I'm not sure how much of this is related to the version of Tortoise and how
much is my projects. I have admittedly large projects that use
TortoiseSVN. Example: http://www.ohloh.net/p/wikia (it says about 2 million
lines in about 3,000 files).

Is there possibly a bug in SVN or is my usage just beyond what it is built
to support? If that's the case, is there a way I can disable or at least
tame the caching?

Thank you,
