Update and Status in large working copy causes Windows to hang

I am running Windows XP SP3 with Subversion and TortoiseSVN 1.6.6 and have 2
GB of RAM with nothing else running during the operations. The problem
below has also been seen in 1.6.3 and I've heard reports from users I
support that they've seen this in 1.5.x.

For sufficiently large working copies (1.2 GB, not sure what the cut off is
though) when performing update or status operations from the top level of
the working copy, Windows Explorer locks up and stops refreshing windows or
responding at all. This usually leads to errors in the actual Subversion
operation, saying there aren't enough resources to complete the operation.
Sometimes my VPN client disconnects part way through. For these large
working copies I can usually reproduce the error with one or two updates in
a row.

Sometimes I can clear it up by killing Windows Explorer and letting it
automatically reload.

Has anyone else seen issues like this? Is this a memory leak?
