Ok, now it's clear why you don't have always up-to-date status overlays.
You see, on network shares, it's the server that does the monitoring.
And the server is responsible for sending notifications about changes of
files to the clients. But those notifications have a very low priority
on the server - other serving tasks (sending files, websites, ...) come
first. Sometimes a server even drops change notifications.
Also, those notifications are sent unacknowledged, so if a packet is
lost, neither server nor client will notice that - and that means the
cache simply doesn't know about a change and won't update the status.

There's nothing I can do about that, sorry.
