You have to turn on the "monitor local files" option to get autorefresh.
If you want new files that are found to be placed on the bottom (like
ms-exploder) you have to set that option in the xfce-mcs-manager,
otherwise they get placed on the top of a folder.
Much of the extra gtk overhead which makes xffm slower than xftree,
actually makes it faster on faster machines (treeviews are represented
by models with additional caches in memory), but on older boxes it
serves the opposite effect. So in the end xffm will get faster.
