That's a valid point, I didn't think about this. Usually I just hit 
<ctrl>-<r> to perform a reload. The real problem of course is that you 
have to use it at all. In my opinion, it should not be necessary to 
reload a location.

What's more, sometimes reloading does not even work. I experienced this 
using network shares (CIFS mounts). Only closing and opening thunar 
helps here, looks like thunar caches the file size somehow, and the 
cache is not invalidated when reloading. Unfortunately, I couldn't find 
out how to reproduce this.
