Description Santiago Erquicia 2004-04-02 13:42:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040312 Epiphany/1.1.12

Description of problem:
When you rename a file to one that starts with a dot, it doesn't
update the view and it actually doesn't renames the file.

The icon it's shown as "filename", if you click over it, it says in
the status bar ".filename".  If you reload the folder, you no longer
have the file (changing preferences to see hidden files)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.create a text file in a folder
2.name it "test"
3.rename it as ".test"

Actual Results:  The file is lost and the view is not updated

Expected Results:  rename the file while showing it until you refresh
the view

Additional info:

I tried with the browser view of nautilus and it works.  It seems that
the problem is only with the spatial view

I tried again with FC2 test 2 updated up today and it doesn't happen.
 I don't know if it is something about fam or not (just a guess, I
heard that fam is enabled now)

Seems to work for me too in rawhide.
