That's another bug that has been sitting there for years.  Look for
yourself.  panel_operate() in src/file.c:

int panel_operate (...)
    int only_one = (get_current_type () == view_tree) ||
                   (panel->marked <= 1);
    if (only_one) {
        /* No panel_compute_totals() here */
    } else {
        /* Many files */
        if (operation != OP_MOVE && verbose && file_op_compute_totals) {
            panel_compute_totals (panel, &ctx->progress_count, 

Want to fix it?
