Simon, this is the problem I was seeing when I sent this report during
the 1.2.0 release candidates. (See the original mail:
http://svn.haxx.se/tsvn/archive-2005-05/1416.shtml )

If something updates files in sub-directories that are not currently
being displayed in explorer (like a build process, or pot creation),
then the status cache doesn't know that anything has changed (I'm
guessing). Pressing F5 doesn't do anything because it doesn't trigger
the cache to re-check the recursive status.

I'm guessing that this is going to be tricky to fix, unless the cache
can somehow be notified of file modifications to folders not open in
explorer. But my understanding is that the windows APIs to do this
kind of monitoring don't scale too well.

This is the only problem I now notice with the status overlays .... if
we can think of a way to resolve this it would be great.
