As I mentioned before:
If every item (files/folders, including the .svn folder) got a "normal"
overlay then that means that the working copy is locked (e.g. due to
another operation running on it, like update/commit/...). If that
happens, the cache can't read the status, and the shell then just shows
the overlay "normal" to indicate that it's a working copy. But once the
working copy isn't locked anymore, the cache will re-crawl it and the
overlays will be ok again. But, the cache will wait at least 10 seconds
before trying to crawl that working copy again to avoid too many failed
recrawls due to a longer operation in progress.
