Weird behaviour when navigating with keyboard keys after having deleted a file


Description Jérôme Guelfucci editbugs 2009-05-15 16:41:28 CEST
This seems to happen only with the compact list view and the icon view.

Select a file, and trash it. A new file is automatically selected by Thunar. Press an arrow key to navigate. It selects two later, instead of only one.

I'm not sure I'm very clear, so let's try to draw an exemple.

Those are for files, 2 is selected:

1  |2|  3   4

Delete it, 1 is selected:

|1|  3   4

Press the right arrow, 4 is selected, while 3 should have been selected:

1   3   |4|

    Properly update the cursor when a row is deleted in (bug #5361).
    When cursor and selection are out of sync weird things happen, as
    described by Jérôme in the bug comment on
