Overlay icons gradually disappear afer a short time

What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Install TortoiseGit 126.96.36.199 on Windows 7 x64, set overlay icons to "Default"
- Browse a few directories with different repositories
- Watch the icons as you browse
What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Icons of versioned files should always be displayed. Most of the time it's the green "unmodified" or the red "modified" icon.
Instead, after a few minutes, most icons are simply missing. Killing TGitCache.exe and refreshing the directory view helps for a while, until the icons disappear again.
What version of TortoiseGit and msysgit are you using? On
what operating system?
TortoiseGit 188.8.131.52 (C:\Program Files\TortoiseGit\bin)
git version 1.9.5.msysgit.0 (C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin)
Windows 7 x64 SP1
Please provide any additional information below.
With 1.8.12, I often had the problem that icons were outdated after a while. That was annoying because you never knew whether the information displayed was correct. It was very unreliable and eventually useless in that form. But at least the mean time to failure was within the range of days.
Now with 1.8.13, at least I know when the information is wrong. That is when icons of files I know are versioned no longer appear. Unfortunately, the mean time to failure today is within minutes.
I'm not sure whether I should believe it's getting better or worse.
