Beware the Windows Scheduled Tasks!

I've had a TeamCity server run much much slower than it's other counterparts.

I finally narrowed it down to Scheduled Tasks. The agent was started at logon by Scheduled Tasks.

It looks like Scheduled Tasks will start in under below normal priority and while this wasn't a problem for many of our build tools, TortoiseSVN however performs very very poorly in below normal priority.
