Disabling sometimes doesn't work. I know of two that still interfere
even when disabled: Kaspersky and Norton. Apparently they think that
users are too stupid and letting them disable the tool is not good, so
they only appear to be disabled.

And as I said: those virus scanners behave differently for UI processes
than console processes. The command line client is a console process,
and TSVN is an UI process.
