I strongly agree.  I can't imagine any circumstances under which the
user would prefer to see the old contents of the directory.  IMHO, until
FAM is a requirement, we should not allow Nautilus to "lie" to the user.

Maybe we should confirm that this patch does introduce the unwanted
behavior?  According to an email which Yoann just posted a moment ago,
the bug has yet to be observed...  Does anyone else care to test it?
