Not really. The whole status fetching is still disabled/excluded as you
have configured it.
But with that option activated, the shell extension does a quick check
whether an .svn folder exists. If it does, it shows the 'normal'
overlay. But that's all: it only checks if the .svn folder exists,
nothing more! You could create an empty .svn folder without any data in
it, that would be enough to show the overlay.
