I assume you mean WC on a fileserver, not repo on a fileserver.

OK, I have got an amended version ready to commit, but is there another
solution? If the limiting factor is only the network access, then why
don't you _always_ refresh for fixed and RAM drives, and have the
checkbox control other slower drive types (network, CD, floppy (???)).
Or is it sometimes slow on fixed drives too?
