[TSVN] changed Icon set - Win2K changed to 16bit

From: T E Schmitz <mailreg_at_numerixtechnology.de>

I am running TortoiseSVN- on Win2K.

I noticed recently that when svn-adding a file the wrong overlay icon is
being applied: rather than the "added" overlay, the "modified" overlay
is used. This used to work correctly. I can only presume now that the
behaviour changed when I upgraded to version 1.2.1.

In an attempt to fix this problem, I tried to change the icon set. (I
cannot be too sure but I might have changed to Subclipse.) As soon as I
applied the changes, the screen flickered, the overlay icons changed but
also ALL icons (not just Tortoise overlaid ones) changed to 16bit!
Rebooting, changing back to the XP icon set and trying other icon sets
all did not help.

I de-installed Tortoise and re-installed. No difference.

I checked the Windows display settings, which are still at True Colour.
It would appear though that I am in 16bit (High Colour) mode now.
Changing the colour depth back and forth does not make a difference either.

A very similar problem was described here: http://tinyurl.com/ckg46.
I followed the suggestions: installed TweakUI and rebuilt the icon cache
- to no avail. I also tried the suggestions on the FAQ article: deleted
the Windows icon cache, increased the Windows icon cache. Nothing fixes
the problem.

Does anyone have a clue what happened or, more importantly, how I can
fix this?
