Thanks. That was indeed my question.

The exclamation points are actually on folders, not files. It appears
that they show up when my Java compiler generates .class files and dumps
them into a directory. I do not want to have class files in the version
control system, and I have specifically excluded them using

global-ignores = *.class

in the config file. Yet the exclamation point remain, even after I do a
Commit on the entire source tree.

Also, I get exclamation points on folders that do not contain any files
or subdirectories that are themselves marked with exclamation points. I
do not see the cause of warning. An F5 refresh does not clear it up.

Is there any way to see exactly why Tortoise thinks a folder needs
attention?
