Right - that is the "show outdated folders" preference, which is turned
on by default in 1.2.3, but will be turned off by default in future
releases because it causes so much confusion.

You won't see the files you just committed in synch view, because the
commit updates the local revision number of that file when it commits,
so it's up-to-date with the repository and doesn't need updating. (I
didn't realize it did that, so that confused me in the first example
with my own files.) However, commit can't similarly update the local
revision number of the parent folders, since they might contain other
changes in the repository that you need to update.

Right, that second case is really the only mystery.

I may occasionally commit a single file direct from the RadRails
perspective, but all my updates are done from Synch view w/changesets on.
