I'm using 1.6.4, let me set up what I've got.
In Icon overlays:
All drive types are unchecked.
My exclude path was blank
My include path was:
Show Excluded folders as normal is on;

I set these up so TortoiseSVN would not waste CPU and memory on
directories that I didn't think were version controlled, but it would
indicate to me what directories were version controlled.

I had forgotten that I needed to add C:\lib\* to my list. However, when
I went into C:\lib\ it showed the green checkmark, indicating it's up to
date. However, because it wasn't in the include list, that's why it was
showing up to date. In actuality, there were modified files. I didn't
see that because it wasn't in the include path. It mislead me to
believe i had finished my commit.

What I think TortoiseSVN should be doing is indicate to me that the
directory is revisioned, but that it doesn't know if it's up to date or

When it's not being monitored, I want to know that the directory is not
being monitored but is revisioned, not hide it by telling me it's up to
date. That's why I think the question mark would be a good solution.


PS: I'm sure the way I did this reply will break the threading, sorry
about that.
