Not icon overlays but the cache's file system watcher.

Thanks to your MSN Beta invitation and some lying in my MSN settings
about where I live I could activate and test the folder sharing. And
yes, the cache crashed immediately.

So, since the crash was reproducable, I could easily find the reason for
it: MSN8 creates folders with paths longer than MAX_PATH (that's why
they require an NTFS filesystem and not FAT32), which the cache didn't
like very much.
(btw: explorer doesn't like those either. Try browsing the hidden
folders in \local settings\application
you can't browse there...)

Fixed in revision 5826.
