Update cache and icon overlays immediately when commit?

I have been using TSVN for a few months and lurking on this
list. There has been a lot of discussion about the background
process that updates the cache and the icon overlays. As I
understand it, it is a "lazy" process that runs in the background, to
avoid slowing everything else down too much. That explains why the
icon overlays in Windows Explorer don't always reflect recent
changes, and isn't a problem.

Sometimes the overlays will indicate that there are changed files,
but when I commit, there is nothing to do. That is OK, but I noticed
that the overlays (at least on some of the directories) continue to
indicate that there are uncommitted changes. I understand that the
background process probably hasn't had a chance to update them yet,
but since the commit process has just checked them, it seems like the
overlays could be updated immediately (or at least more quickly). Is
this normal, or is there something messed up with my installation? I
am using 1.3.1, Build 5521 - 32 bit.


P.S. TSVN is great. Many thanks to those that put so much time into it.
