Just discovered and fixed a (potentially serious) bug in Dolphin, KDE's file manager and generic file model:

Sorting by size would cause an unstable sort order under certain circumstances.

This sounds innocent at first, until you realize this also causes it to expand a folder's content into the wrong view parent: you expand folder A, but all its files show up below folder B.

You may think you're deleting an empty folder, but it's not actually empty 😟

Fix here: invent.kde.org/system/dolphin/


Quick update: the fix has been approved and landed in master as well as the stable branch for the upcoming 21.08 release of Dolphin! ❤️
