I'm not an MVP but the way it see it is that the files are still hidden
even though you set them to be not hidden, but once you double click the
folder you'll notice that it will now be displayed in the folder pane.
This probably has got to do folder caching, be default, maybe vista
doesn't cache them but if you do access or open them they are displayed
even after closing and re-opening the explorer window. maybe there's a
setting to cache all folders but i guess it'll eat up plenty of space if
that setting were to be turned on.
