Yes, that is a wrong, imo. It should actually make the file vanish on
cut. And there should be a Clipboard viewer where you can drag the file
out if you closed the folder after cutting without pasting, and an undo
action to undo the cut (that works even after reopening the folder).
Hard, I know, but that would be the right thing (tm) ;)

ok I stop dreaming now ;)

Using Cut&Paste for files is weird in any way. It would require
something like the trash mechanism just in another place (.clipboard).
If one cuts a file, it gets 'trashed' into some .clipboard, and that
would make it even more weird. Sigh.
