If the recursive status isn't shown correct, you can execute the
'cleanup' command to force the cache to refresh.

That wouldn't work either. If you fetch the status recursively every
time, it will be wrong as long as the status of all subdirs isn't known.
The way it works now is that if a subfolder discovers a status change,
it tells that to its parent and that one changes the recursive status
