Bug or feature?


A large VFS timeout can cause strange behaviour in archive file
after replacing an archive file with another one of the same name but
contents, MC 4.6.0 "remembers" the contents of the previous archive for
a while.

To see what I mean:

  zip test.zip test1

Now press Enter on test.zip: it shows "test1".
Exit from the archive (press Enter) and type:

  rm test.zip
  zip test.zip test1 test2

Press Enter again on test.zip. MC still thinks the archive has 1 file
in it.

A good workaround is to reduce the "Timeout for freeing VFSs" value.
So, is this a bug or a feature? Should it remain like this?
