RE: TortoiseSVNCache resource usage

You can turn off the caching by setting it to "none" in Settings -> Overlays -> Status Cache

But, I think then you don't get overlays at all.

Subject: 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,
