What the cache does is check every path, yes. But for pre-1.7 working
copies, it gets an error returned and immediately assumes somethings
wrong with the working copy and blocks it from getting scanned until
something inside that path changes. It won't get scanned anymore

What I could do however is to assume status 'obstructed' or something
like that for pre-1.7 working copies. But that's dangerous because the
overlay icon wouldn't be correct. and any status than 'none' as
assumed now for such folders means the cache will retry scanning them
often - if someone doesn't want to upgrade a working copy because it's
used by older clients, then the cache would go crazy...
