I guess I don't understand this, since even if you clear the TMR0 register
before entering this loop, it will show "zero overflow" according to the bit
7 test when TMR0 gets to 128, not 256.  I NEVER use bit 7 for a 'pass zero'
test unless you're using decf or otherwise subtracting a value less than

I don't see how it could work.

I've used the T0IF bit to detect TMR0 overflow without enabling the
interrupt and it works fine.  Yes, the datasheet is correct in stating that
the flag bit is set regardless of the mask.

Are you using the watch window to monitor the INTCON register for the T0IF
bit?  If so, what does it do when TMR0 overflows?  Note that it doesn't get
RESET  - you have to clear the flag bit in software after it's set by TMR0
