thunar does not update date and time when a dot file is replaced


Has anybody else seen a problem with thunar not updating the display of the date and time of a dot file when it is replaced with a newer version?

I came across this while using R that creates a .Rdata file. If the file is replaced with a newer version, the date and time is not updated in thunar. I find I need to close and reopen thunar to see the updated file displayed with the correct date and time.

I have a memory of seeing this discussed in an earlier thread, but I have been unable to locate that thread.

Have done some further testing.
1) Does not occur on my 64bit system.
2) Reinstalled Thunar package on my 32bit system and problem persists.
3) Rebuilt package from source and reinstalled. Problem persists.

Comment - Not a major issue but I would be happier seeing all file dates as correct when copying off to my USB drive.

Yes, I see a similar problem with file permissions. It is easy to reproduce.

Open Terminal and do:

% Thunar &
% mkdir a
% mkdir a/b

In Thunar, double-click on directory "a" and then go up one level.

% chmod -R u-w a

Now, double-click on directory "a". Thunar will show directory "b" as writable. Thunar's copy of the permissions is stale. Clicking on "reload" does not update the information.

Slackware 14.0 (64-bit).
