Time to upgrade! Subversion just hit 1.2.3, and that means sometime next
week TSVN will release version 1.2.2.

With HEAD, this works. But I found a really strange behaviour:
As you all well know, the left treeview of the explorer doesn't update
the overlays as it should. You can read about why that is in our FAQ (it
has to do with explorer doing some caching of its own). So we all got
used to having the treeview being way behind with the overlays -
actually the overlays there don't get updated as often as they should.
Now: with HEAD, I left the TSVNCache running, had the explorer open,
showing folder "SubfolderTest". That folder was also visible in the
treeview. Then, right-click on that folder, bring up the TSVN property
page, change the svn:external property to whatever test string I like,
hit "Set". - oh wonder: the treeview overlay changed after about a
second, while the overlay in the *right* (detailed) view didn't change
at all until I hit F5. So I removed the svn:external property again
(i.e. the status of the folder changed to 'normal'). Again, the overlay
in the treeview changed after about a second to 'normal', but the
overlay in the detailed right view didn't change until F5 was pressed.
This happens *every* time!
Strange, strange - the explorer is really starting to freak me out ;)
