Most are correct but occasionally one will show red when the file is up-to-date. Sometimes the icons are just a little slow to update but I get the occasional one that stubbornly refuses to believe the file is up-to-date.

You can also try TSVN->Cleanup

The problem with treeview is a bug in Windows Explorer and is not
limited to icon overlays. If you delete a folder using a console
window, the file pane will update to show the folder gone, but the
tree view does not.
