Having working copies on network shares is always slow and not
recommended at all. It could corrupt the SQLite database used in a
working copy.

That said: you can either switch the overlays to "Shell" or disable them
completely in the settings dialog so TSVNCache.exe won't run and scan
the working copies, or at least exclude all working copies and all
network paths from showing overlays (even if you don't have working
copies on them).
