Icons don't always refresh in "Folders" sidebar

TortoiseSVN Folks,

So we're using and loving TortoiseSVN (1.3.5 on XP) on our project, but we've
found one bug that's fairly irritating. We're wondering if there's a workaround
for it.

I keep an Explorer window open alongside Visual Studio while developing. I have
my explorer set to "Details" view, and I have the "Folders" sidebar open on the
left side, so that I can easily navigate my directory tree. The following steps
lead to inconsistent icons:

1) Get a clean checkout in a folder at the root of my drive (seems repeatable
other places, too). For example "V:\WC"
2) Open explorer with "Folders" sidebar open on left side.
3) Modify a file within the working copy.
4) Notice that the red "!" icon shows up on the right side of the explorer
window, and it shows up on the left side in the "Folders" sidebar for all of the
subdirectories of "V:\WC", but the icon for "V:\WC" in the sidebar stays a green
checkmark. If I click on "V:\" in the sidebar, I see that the "WC" folder has
the "!" icon in the Explorer on the right, but not in the Sidebar on the left.

There are many variations on this theme that lead to the icons staying out of
sync. For example, if I close the Explorer window and open a new one, now the
red "!" will show on "V:\WC" in the sidebar. But if I right-click that folder
and revert all my changes, the red "!" won't go away!

Refreshing, closing/reopening the "Folders" sidebar, and expanding/unexpanding
the "V:\" drive do nothing to resolve the situation. The only workaround is to
close the Explorer window and open a new one.

Does anyone have any tips for this problem?

Thanks,
Sanford Armstrong
