I am not going to say No. I can say that the way decorators work is
that the view is in charge. It makes the decision, for whatever
reason, to call Subclipse and ask it to redecorate a given item. I do
not believe we are even in charge of the actual painting of the view.
I think we just provide the values for the decorators.

Try running the Cleanup option. It could be that your local file
timestamps have been modified and that takes longer for Subversion to
calculate status information.

BTW, the Cleanup option does not provide any output. If your
timestamps have been modified, it will update the SVN information.
