It doesn't always happen, but basically I just modify a file inside a
subfolder of my working copy, then commit. The status icon never changes
to a green tick unless I go into that folder and back up again. Nothing
more complex than that. About 60% of the time it works OK, and rest of
the time it doesn't. I haven't worked out any pattern as to why it works
sometimes and why it doesn't work other times.
