Copy & Paste copying wrong files

This is just a heads-up to what is a critical bug regarding incorrect copy/paste behavior. When I paste to a selected directory, CyberDuck copies from the wrong location. In our case we have multiple s3 buckets with sometimes 1000s of keys so I can see a buggy copy/paste displayed in the progress line as hundreds of files being copied. I have to disconnect to stop the copying and I then I find a directory full of files that I didn't intend to copy.

I wish I had more specific description of the problem, but I have observed the behavior several times using CyberDuck and my colleague also observed the same behavior. Even though I don't have the exact details to reproduce it, the problem seems so severe that I wanted to give you a notice. My colleague and I suspect that there is an internal data structure of cached s3 keys and that the paste operation is accidentally referencing the wrong data.
