#1027 closed bug (invalid)

Trash icon sometimes fails to update after clearing it of items

Sometimes when clearing the Trash it fails to update the icon. The icon must be rightclicked and then swept over in some way so as to force it to be redrawn in order to restore the correct empty icon. I have been unable to ascertain what causes this to happen.

This behaviour was also present in the version of Tracker released with BeOS R5.

Okay, I've realised this is a stupid, stupid report caused by me not checking rigorously enough. Could someone close this as not-a-bug?

I've seen this for years in BeOS, so I had a quick look at TrashWatcher.cpp.

I'm testing the latest Haiku OpenTracker on BeOS/Bone, where I've set BTrashWatcher to run at B_NORMAL_PRIORITY instead of B_LOW_PRIORITY. Just a shot in the dark.

Formally, would it be okay for me to reopen this ticket?

If you are experiencing this bug under Haiku, yes, of course. If you only know it from BeOS, then no. Haiku is supposed to deliver node monitor messages in a much more sane and safer way than R5 did.

IOW this problem shouldn't exist under Haiku. It's not a problem of the Tracker code, it's a problem of BeOS losing messages.
