Newbie with thunar bug.

Hi Román,

Reloading a folder occurs when you click on 'View -> Reload' or press
'Ctrl+R'. If the problem is just a refreshment problem, reloading the
folder should handle it indeed. However, isn't there a function for
just reloading a file and the status bar that displays its size? Can
you identify (maybe using breakpoints) how the copied files (except
the last one which triggers the bug) are refreshing as part of the
file copy operation?
