Cyberduck loses directory names after download

Description

This is a report of two intersecting problems in cyberduck.

set up: I have a directory with about 500 sub directories. I am selecting these in consecutive chunks of 36 subdirs then requesting a download_to from the action menu.

Problem: every once in a while the list of sub directories changes. specifically it shows the icons for the directories bu their names have vanished. it shows the names of some of the directories but after a certain point they are all missing. Those names were visible prior to the download. but vanished after the download request.

workaround:

the obvious workaround that does not work is the second issue. Ideally i'd like to simply press "refresh" and have it refresh the list of directories.

however this does not work because if if you have one or more directories selected in a list of subdirectories then pressing refresh does the seemingly incorrect behaviour of showing you the contents of the first selected directory in the current directory not the current directory itself.

Given that behaviour it would be desirable to have a way to unselect any choice. But there does not seem to be a way to do this. Maybe one could scroll to the end and click in a blank spot. But that's really annoying when you have 500 subdirectories to scroll through.

Correction: I had about 1296 subdirectories not 500

After further experience with this I find myself wondering if a different behaviour is masquerading as this missing file name behaviour.

I suspect what might be going on to cause this period vanishing name effect is that I am somehow clicking too hard on a selection causing it to trigger the opening of the directory. Because the lag time on th bussy server is so long cyber duck does not immediately respond with the directory list. In the mean time, the directory view somehow fails to properly show the previous directory contents even though it still allows scrolling while it is trying to open the new directory.

I'm not sure if that's the issue or not. in any case the other issues remain and maybe this one too since it's a very confusing defect.
