I had never noticed that setting before so that is progress, thanks.

What would be ideal would be having a file marked as "watched", show as
a different color. A long time ago someone helped me change the
selection cursor to show as a different color by changing this in:
<!-- to give a green highlight -->
  <state name="selectedactive" from="active">
                <shape name="buttonbackground">
                    <fill color="#00ff00" alpha="100" /> <!-- changed this entry -->

But I don't know if that is possible.
