Hey, Edscott. I just lost a lot of work due to an unexpected way Xffm
handles some things.
When I double click a folder in a tree view, the folder becomes the
root, and is selected. I've run into trouble in the past where I've
control clicked on a few items to move them, and gotten a "Can't move
/dir into a subdirectory of itself". I've slowly gotten used to
clicking to deselect the root to avoid this problem.
Today, I forgot, and when I wanted to just delete a few files from a
folder, I deleted the entire folder instead. In this case of course, I
recieved no warning.
If you could change the behavriour of double clicking a folder to not
select that folder, I would be very happy.
CAPS LOCK: ITS LIKE THE CRUISE CONTROL FOR AWESOME
