Thanks for verifying that the *intended* behavior and the
documentation agree, Stefan.

But this does confirm (I think) that the *observed* behavior as
reported in the first post of this thread represents a failure.

To recap (I am getting good at this), a freshly-started copy of
TSVNCache fails to display the overlays for folders containing SVN WCs
in the "no drive types enabled but Include path(s) specified" case,
but the overlays on contained files are present.

Also, *disabling* all drive types and doing, say, a Refresh leaves the
[project folder] overlays in place - only a fresh copy of TSVNCache
exhibits the problem.
