Well, for the right-pane it will work. But the treeview (left-pane) is
worse than donkey.
You have to understand that it only works correctly if a file/folder
changed _directly_ in the folder you're currently viewing in explorer.
If e.g. a file below that changed, this means that the overlay for the
folder should change, but the explorer discards the refresh of this
because it can't see a change of that folder.
In a newsgroup, an MS dev once told that this had to be done for
performance reasons, because many programs just called the refresh
function even if the explorer didn't actually need a refresh. So since
then, that doesn't work correctly anymore.
