Icon Overlay Caching Issue

We've run into an issue with the TSVNCache process when icon overlays are enabled for network drives. Basically what we're seeing is, for no known reason at all, TSVNCache goes out to the attached network drives and starts caching everything it can find - on one system, this resulted in ~11GB of data read from our server by the process in around an hour. As soon as we disabled the option for icon overlays on network drives, the behavior went away. Also, during this time, there were no Explorer windows open on the client - everything was closed down. Does this sound like normal/expected behavior?
For the second part of the question, perhaps this is an Enhancement Request, is there a way that the network portion of the icon overlays could be more finely tuned? For example, you can add exclusions, but what about having some sort of manual caching trigger (and disabling the automatic caching for the network side) or specifying *exactly* which network folders you want the icon overlays to be present on, rather than assuming they should be present on all attached network drives? We have shared network locations where multiple users store working copies of SVN repos, but each user doesn't need to see overlays for all of the other users on those network drives - only their own. Under the current config, they'd have to go exclude everything except their own. Any chance that could be tweaked?
