As an aside, I noticed that the treeview isn't actually refiltered
here, so after the file reverting to STATE_NORMAL, it still appears in
the treeview even when normal files should be filtered out. I thought
about 'fixing' this, and then decided that the current behaviour was
actually better. I think that when you're reviewing changes, it makes
it obvious that there are a set of files that were different, and
which you're now done with.

Thanks for the explanation. The updated patch looks great, so I've
just pushed it.
