Bug report: Failure of Icon overlay display on subst drives with cause

From: Steffen Lau <privSL_at_gmx.de>

I have observed some strange behavior of the icon handling under windows
xp professional.

I use TortoiseSVN 1.3.5, Build 6804 - 32 Bit and have also used the 3
suggested previous versions. (I am a relativ new user, but here is my
opinion: great software, great interface)
All of them have shown the same behavoir, but today I found out why they
do that.

I use TortoisSVN under a adminstrator account und create a subst drive
S: with

subst %1: /d
subst %1: %2
explorer.exe /e,/root, %1:\
rem pause

after logon by clicking on a link on my desktop to the batch file with
the appropriate parameters.

Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

The cause:

If another user is logged on but inactiv (Fast user Switching) the icons
will not be displayed on the whole "susbst" drive.
If the other user is also an administrator it helps to kill the explorer
process and start it again.
If the other user is only user you have to log off him first (Task
manager -> Logoff user, sorry user ;-)
After that, reopen your drive and usually the icon will be there,
otherwise resubst.

I don't know if this helps: I *may* also interfere with the "suspend to
disk"-mode, because I use that all the time. (And other people use that
machine too...).

It is very annoying so I hope there is a solution for the problem.
I hope this bugreport helps.

I have not subscribed your mailing list, please (if you do) answer direct.

Best regards
