The commit dialog monitors the working copy in a background thread for
change notifications. Such notifications are sent by the OS in case
files are modified/moved/renamed/...
If such a notification is received, the commit dialog first does a few
checks so it can drop most of them. If the notification indicates that a
file that is not checked and not visible in the commit dialog has
somehow changed, it switches back to non-recursive committing.
That's because if you have e.g. a file open in another editor and save
your changes while the commit dialog is open, then that file would get
committed as well even though you haven't checked it in the commit
dialog (it doesn't show up until you refresh the dialog with F5).

So if you see that warning dialog often, please check if there's another
tool/app running which modifies files in your working copy.

And as you noticed: if you hit F5, that 'non-recursive flag' is reset
because after a refresh, you see all the files again - even the ones you
modified after you started the dialog.
