Hi devs.
I'm unsure of the correct terminology so please bear with me on this.

I have a nightly build with Will Dean's recursion for folder status
active, rev .2760 on a w2k box.
For the most part it works really well and is a tremendous advance.
The remote server runs SVN 1.1.3 with Apache 2.0.52 on NT4

On the local machine I have the entire small project tree checked out
(only 20 versioned files in project), branches tags trunk, the lot.
The branches bit looks like this, with SourceTree and below being versioned.

Under branches I have
                                              \Segregate GUI and Process
@rev 51

AddBP7 folder contains the project files and four folders as shown below.

I select the AddBP7 to view it's contents
In the GUI folder a modified versioned file sets GUI's icon to show a
red circle with a white exclamation mark. This I expect.
So to the unexpected behavior.
If I back out of AddBP7 to view the Branches folder the AddBP7's icon
shows an unmodified green circle with the white tick.
No matter how long I wait or press F5 there is no change reflected back
from GUI's status to AddBP7.
If I right click and SVN Update the icon changes to show the red.
Thats good.
However when I again select AddPB7, and viewed it's contents than backed
out to Branches, I got the unmodified status against AddBP7 again.
I needed to click SVN Update to get the modified status icon to
re-appear for the AddBP7 folder.
I repeated the exercise step-in, back-out process and the unmodified
status re-appeared for the AddBP7 folder.

Seemed repeatable, and definitely not what I expected so wrote this
lengthy description .
Now one last check for good measure before launching the email and blow
me down it's started working properly again.
However, for a while it wasn't so does this constitute something to
An uninitialized variable or something?
