Is it possible that a virus scanner is interfering with TortoiseCache by
blocking access to a file?

This in theory is possible, however I'm not really sure what I'd be able to do about this long term. If you'd like me to temporarily disable my A/V (it's "Avast" for what it's worth, with no real customizations or exclusions or anything added) to find out I can, but I obviously wouldn't want to run without any A/V installed. Similarly, I don't think I'd want to leave my entire web directory (which happens to be one of the only folders shared on this PC) left unprotected permanently either.

Is it possible that you have created an infinite loop in your directory
structure by using junctions?

I'm not sure what junctions are exactly. If it's a feature of SVN or Tortoise, then this isn't a possibility as I haven't used the feature.

I do use SVN externals in one of our repositories, however there should be no infinite loop, as the one folder we import using externals has no other folders set up as externals within that repository.

Does it also happen if you explicitely include only those paths that
contain working copies in the TortoiseSVN overlays settings and exclude
the rest?

I'm not entirely sure. I have 14 repositories checked out on this PC, so I'll try to go through and explicitly allow them. I just now noticed that there seems to be a newline space in both the exclude and include fields. I've cleared it out to be sure that wasn't causing a problem (never noticed it before as I'd never clicked into the fields previously).

Out of curiosity, what's the difference between default and shell icon caching? Would you expect any performance differences between the two?
