TSVN 1.6.2: Overlay icons for lock-needed files missing? (+ other TSVNCache observations)

I apologize if some of my descriptions of dialog boxes are a little
vague, I'm not anywhere near the machine in question at the moment.

I've recently upgraded from TSVN 1.4.3 to TSVN 1.6.2. I've noticed two
things since the transition:

1) The overlay icon for files that have the 'svn:lock-needed' property
set don't seem to get drawn in Explorer. Neither acquiring a lock for
nor modifying said files does makes the overlay appear. Removing the
'svn:lock-needed' property, then committing clears it right up. Overlay
icons for "locked" and "read-only" files show up just fine in the
"Select an icon overlay style" dialog box.

I have the "caching style" set to "Default", rather than "Current Folder
Only" or "None". I'm only caching local fixed disk drives. I've run
"Cleanup" on all of my WCs. I *do* have a mapped drive that points to a
share on my local harddrive.

2) TSVNCache seems to be much less "aggressive" than it was in 1.4.3.
Consider a repo that looks like this:
... two or three more folders in d, each with a file in them ...
... two or three more files in d ...

and these actions:
a) Check out a WC to a local disk.
b) Use Explorer to navigate to someFile.
c) Modify someFile.
d) Use Explorer to navigate to the root of the WC.
e) Use TSVN to commit.

With 1.4.3, the overlay in the Folder View for 'b' would change from
"modified" to "up-to-date" immediately after the commit.
With 1.6.2, the overlay doesn't update until quite some time (minutes?)
after the commit. Pressing F5 doesn't seem to speed this process up.
Navigating to 'd' causes the overlay to update immediately.

Now consider these actions:
a) Check out a WC
b) Use Explorer to navigate to the root of that WC.
c) Modify someFile.

With 1.4.3, the overlay in the Folder View for 'b' would change to
"modified" within a few seconds of 'someFile''s modification.
With 1.6.2, it's pretty much the same behaviour as in the previous example.

Anyway, let me know if I can provide any more information or clarify
anything. I'll try to get TSVN installed on a nearby machine, and maybe
create a little sample repo that demos the problem so's I could send it
to you guys if need be.
