 Replying to [ticket:3930 michael@…]:
 > Hi, just a couple of bugbears regarding your latest version.
 > 1. The 'info' panel has been modified such that the permissions
 information is now on a separate tab, requiring an extra click to see the
 information. Small thing I know, but for someone working with your program
 all day it means constant clicking back and forth between tabs to see the
 'general' and 'permissions' information - each one doesn't have that much
 information, why not leave them on the same tab?

 We will additionally have ACL settings in the permission tab for
 [milestone:3.6 3.6].

 > 2. Modifying permissions - the apply button has been removed and now it
 automatically populates permissions information on a per click basis.
 This makes updating permissions for multiple items a serious pain, as
 every time you click a checkbox it runs through the whole list and makes
 the change, before you can check another one! Obviously is worse the
 longer the list of files / folders you are changing permissions for... not
 sure why this is a better way of doing it ??

 We will revert to a push button to apply permissions recursivly.

 > 3. Bug - updating the permissions doesn't update the value listed in the
 'permissions' column in the file window - one has to click the refresh
 button to see the new permissions listed. Again, this is a change / bug as
 it previously worked fine.

 Refreshing the directory listing might be time consuming and therefore has
 to be refreshed manually.

 > I've been using your program for many years now and have always vouched
 for it, unfortunately these few changes you've made have really baffled me
 as they seem enormously counter-productive!
