I guess users know when they have a project opened.

Yeah, thats easier, but the tooltip doesn't show unless the user hovers for a 
period, so the insensitive is important too.

Trouble is no symbol is an obvious "this is overridden" especially that new 
users will understand automatically, and its new users who need the warning the 
most.  Thats why setting insensitive is useful, it makes the user stop and 
think for a moment :)
