With the 16624 nightly build on Vista SP2 x64, I see no change - the
configuration I describe above continues to work exactly as I expect -
the "E:\trunk\" include entry is not needed.

"E:\trunk\*" gives icon overlays for all of the folders in the "trunk"
directory, as well as for their contents... but if it ever stops
working, I suppose I will know what to try. ;)
