Access of floppy drive when exploring "My Computer"

In build 1.6.12 I noticed that every time I open a Windows Explorer at "My Computer" - i.e. with all the drives listed, the explorer window takes a couple of seconds to appear and the floppy drive seeks once or twice.

It took some time to narrow it down, but this behaviour only occurs when TortoiseSVN is installed, and it only started happening when I installed 1.6.12. (I cannot say for sure whether I upgraded from 1.6.10 or 1.6.11. I can try this out if necessary.)

The latest version (1.6.13) appears to also have this issue. I was waiting for its release in case it got fixed anyway, but alas it has not.

In the Icon Overlays part of the TortoiseSVN settings I do not have "Drives A: and B:" checked. (I don't use SVN on floppies.)

Disabling the floppy drive is one workaround, but not a useful one as there are things I still use the floppy drive for. Uninstalling TortoiseSVN is another workaround, but it is my preferred SVN interface so I'd rather have it work.

I guess not many people use a floppy drive these days so this may have gone un-noticed, or perhaps I have a peculiar combination of circumstances? If there is anything I can do to provide more useful information please ask.
