When setting that one to 0, the status of a folder isn't fetched but
(if it's versioned) just the 'normal' overlay is shown for it. That
was default setting before our optimizations, but then users
complained that "if I change the properties of a folder, why isn't it
shown as modified?". So now the default is to show the real status
overlay even for folders.

Maybe Russell did a fresh checkout of the Subversion source and forgot
to apply the patches we did before? Just a guess...
Because I haven't experienced any slowdown recently.
