The registry isn't changed. The 1.2.0 release just set the *default* to
MAX_INT if the registry entry is not set already.

Since the cache now never times out anymore, you have to live with
sometimes wrong recursive overlays. If a file gets changed without
explorer noticing it (which happens every time a file changes way below
the path the explorer currently shows), then the recursive overlay will
be wrong.

Problem here: you can't have it both ways. Either the cache times out
and will cause much more disk activity, or it never times out and you
can get wrong overlays.
