[TSVN] Icon overlays and "Make Available Offline" in Windows XP

Hi there,

 

I keep my project workspace on a file-server, and use the "Make Available
Offline" feature so I can work on my projects when I'm not in the office.

 

The problem is when you do that the operating system adds it's own overlay
icon to the files and folders that are synchronised which seems to have
precedence over the Subversion ones. The result is I can't see the status
of the files w.r.t. source control, which is much more important than having
a visual reminder that I'm working on files that are "Available offline".

 

It would be great if your icon overlays either over-rode the Windows ones,
or could be in a different corner of the file/folder icon.

 

Cheers,

-Allan
