NTFS compression issue

Hi,

I've just subscribed to report a strange thing going on in my system that I
suspect TortoiseSVN is related to.
So, I'm running XP Professional SP3 Win32 with latest TortoiseSVN release
installed.
For long time already I noticed that if I set NTFS compressed attribute on
files the actual free space on disk decreases and only after reboot the
system reclaims disc free space and it increases as it should have done
initially. It looks like something is holding locks to disc files preventing
their clusters to be released as free even after files have been removed
from folders and compressed ones have been created instead. And this is
observed for all the files in the system, whether those are SVN check-outs
or just the regular system/user files.
That was on my previous system installation when I was using TortoiseSVN and
now after I had to reinstall my XP recently it's back here again. I have no
evidence, of course, but I specially paid attention that immediately after
the system was reinstalled and updated with all the latest patches the
compression worked fine. And now after some time I see the issue again.
So, my question is if it would be possible to check if some TortoiseSVN
processes (like TSVNCache.exe) are not causing this.
