<BODY leftMargin=1 rightMargin=1 topMargin=1>
<P><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma>There's a gradual increase in Handles (Windows Task Manager) for explorer.exe noticable, related to how frequent a working copy is browsed/accessed through Windows Explorer. Over time this runs well into thousands (some 33000, a limit seems to get reached).<BR>​</FONT></P​>
<P><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma>I've tracked these handles down to being unnamed kernel event objects using ProcessExplorer(SysInternals) and NTObjects (Russell Osterlund, <A href="http://www.smidgeonsoft.com">www.smidgeonsof​t.com</A>).​</FONT></P>​

<P><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma>Further debugging revealed the objects getting created at line 117 of src\TortoiseShell\​RemoteCacheLink.cpp (</FONT><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma><A href="http://code.google.c​om/p/tortoisesvn/sou​rce/browse/trunk/src​/TortoiseShell/Remot​eCacheLink.cpp?r=205​29">http://code.google.c​om/p/tortoisesvn/sou​rce/browse/trunk/src​/TortoiseShell/Remot​eCacheLink.cpp?r=205​29</A>)</P​></FONT>
<P><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma>m_hEvent gets reassigned without&nbsp;first checking for NULL or INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE​.<BR></FONT​></P>
<P><FONT size=2 face=Tahoma>I thought of two solutions, either closing the previous handle or not reassigning when already assigned a proper value. Not knowing the exact impact of closing a&nbsp;handle that may already be in use I tried the latter fix (why else make m_hEvent a member with only local use in <SPAN class=typ><FONT color=#660066>CRe​moteCacheLink</FO​NT></SPAN>​<SPAN class=pun><FONT color=#666600>::​</FONT></SPA​N><FONT color=#660066><SPAN class=typ>GetStat​usFromRemoteCache? seems also more in line with how m_hPipe is created/destroyed). This at least keeps the number of system handles down but not knowing the full impact (specifically, m_hEvent 'handed' to overlapped IO and seeing as this is supposed to handle exceptional cases like crashes) I hesitate to submit this as solution.</SPAN​></FONT></​FONT></P>
