Overlay network share configuration -> explorer freeze/slowdown

I have some code located on a network share. Normally I have TortoiseSVN configured not to display overlay icons on network drives, but since this was an exception I added the path to "Icon overlays"->"Include path" in Settings. The network path is mapped as a drive letter (Z:).
This had some unfortunate side effects. When browsing the network drive the explorer got very unresponsive, hanging (stopped responding) for multiple seconds between each action. (Killing the TSVN-cache process always made explorer "unfreeze" right away.)

Checking "Icon Overlays"->"Network drives" in settings solved the slowdown.

Does the network drive overlay checkbox activate some extra fancy network drive handling logic that is inactive when it is unchecked? I would expect the checkbox to work as a generic include or exclude-filter, but manually entering paths (to any type of drives) should work, regardless of the checkbox settings.

Running TortoiseSVN 1.6.99, Build 20842 - 32 Bit -dev, 2011/02/08 20:10:53 under XP.
