#68 sizes don't refresh when reloading directory in a window

ROX-Filer (85)

This is with Rox-Filer 2.3 (stable), and didn't show
with 2.2.0.
I have a program that runs in a terminal and produces a
log file in a log directory.
The log file actually grows regularly while a ROX
window displays the log directory (icons, medium size,
with sizes).
After cleaning the log directory, I start my program
and I can see ROX window auto-refresh and list the new
file with size=0. Fine with this.
Then the file grows continually.
At any time I go into the ROX window and type the
refresh key, the file's size doesn't refresh at all.
Even after my program has stopped and I go hit the
refresh key again it still doesn't refresh, though I
can "ls -l" in my terminal and check the size isn't the
one displayed in ROX.
Eventually I run a no-op command (":") in ROX window
and then it refreshes and displays the correct size.
I hope I explained clearly enough, and you have enough
information to track the bug down.

    After using a bit more the new version, I also noticed this
    bug occurs after launching most commands through Rox (click
    on an app, use SendTo menu, etc.) when the program runs
    during more than a second or so, and changes file(s)
    displayed in an opened Rox window.
