For example if i want to open a bunch of text/mp3/video files using some program that can handle multiple file arguments, gentoo doesn't have a way of doing it. The {F} control sequence just opens them simultaneously (i.e. repeats the command for each file selection), this is almost never needed in the case of mp3 or video files.

    Actually, that turned out to be a bug. It is the expected behaviour of the {F} control sequence to append selected files, the problem is, when a command is launched from the right-click menu (MenuPopup) it is repeated for every selected file, so instead of launching 'cmd a b c' once, it launches 'cmd a b c && cmd a b c && cmd a b c'.

    I am closing this artifact and a filing a new one for the discovered bug.
