Xffm - bugs or features?

Okay, well a small update on this ;) I was using the "show hidden" menu 
from Main Menu > Options > Preferences to do this. When you unclick the 
box, it definitely doesn't hide the hidden files (I have waited..). It 
still says "Showing hidden" in the status bar, in fact.

However, I just noticed that there's a "show hidden" menu on the 
right-click. That's much faster to get to and indeed works correctly if 
you wait. But using the menu, I do think it's a bug.
