Not quite sure who is asking the question (Simon?), but after the commit
I don't recall having to press F5, the overlay icons updated themselves.

I think I'm saying it all worked like magic and I didn't even need to
initiate the refresh by pressing F5.

I suspect these folk might still be on 1.2.6 or nightlies earlier than
around 4900+

Funny though and oh Stefan you will really hate me for this, but-:
Today after installing yesterday's nightly 4924? then opening the
E:drive root folder containing scattered revisioned folders (by
alphabetic name) the process of displaying overlay icons to revisioned
folders *seemed to stop about half way through* , coming to grief on a
very small WC, not like it was off in huge WC recursing land.
It got ignored, so the opportunity to gather clues was lost, with me not
expecting hiccups.
Tonight I installed rev 4939. The problem manifested itself again, even
though over an hour elapsed, between the install and opening the E:drive.
Same appearance.
Looked at Task Manager and TSVNCache was dormant. Killed it and
everything came good.

Tried repeating the process by doing an uninstall-and re-install then
watching carefully but it all worked perfectly, (as it would).
So, something to think about. What might pause or halt the trolling and
then inhibit it from re-starting -or- if the trolling completed, what
might be needed to "refresh" the icon status.
Initially it looked like TSVNCache stopped trolling on discovering the
first no revisioned folder after scanning a sequence of revisioned folders.
But is the folder search order alphabetic anyway.? The get feeling from
the scan clues could be way off the mark.
And no, I didn't think to press F5. Funny how one gets out of the habit
so fast now it's not so needed.

Vely solly for not being a better tester today.
