No, sorry about the short reply :) the documentation effort is  
currently work-in-progress and leaves much to be desired. I am  
however enjoying the help of two good Samaritans ATM, and I hope to  
have much better documentation in a month or so (which will then be  
included with the app etc.).

Ah, yes. This is a known problem for especially network mounted  
drives (it does check for changes). The delay has been significantly  
improved in recent betas [1], but it should be eliminated completely  
in the future.
