hi,
you like me. all my cases are solved. thanks. :)
now i have another one. Its not a bug but its annoying.
1. When you have in panel a lot of directory and move cursor down till scrolling panel contents
2. Next move cursor up a few position. (e.g. 3 x up arrow key)
3. change directory (press enter)
4. change directory back (press enter)
5. now you see cursor on the bottom of the panel, sometime on top
6. will be great if after back cursor would be on the same position in panel.
I hope it's clear.
regards
j

    I know what you mean, this is a GtkTreeView behaviour and it's hard to change. I'm going to rewrite the list view widget completely (in next few years...) and this will be one of its major features. It's annoying me as well, though I got used to it.

    If you encounter a problem with preserving selection, i.e. when going up, cursor stays on different item or on the top, it's a different bug and please report it.
