22 Not really strange - I got something similar with dolphin too.
24 I use NFS mounts in dolphin a lot (not using the built-in nfs kpart,
25 it's a traditional mount). Double clicking through on folder names would
26 often select everything from where the cursor landed to the top of what
27 is shown in the dolphin window. F5 refresh, or Alt-left and Alt-right
28 wouldn't change anything (I assume some caching is involved). But,
29 clicking away from the current pane to some other folder outside the nfs
30 mount, then re-navigating back to it would make the issue go away.
32 I keep this ~amd64 system quite current (update twice weekly or so) and
33 haven't run into this again for about 6 weeks now. Looks like someone
34 fixed something, in whole or in part.
