Your settings are for the *overlays*. The context menu *has* to fetch
the status (that's why you see SMB traffic: it's fetching the svn
status) of the item you right-clicked on. Without the status, we'd have
to show *all* items all the time, even those which don't make any sense
according to the svn status (e.g., 'commit' for an unversioned folder).
