Description Sebastian Wiedenroth 2006-02-22 01:15:42 UTC
Version:           1.1.2 (using KDE KDE 3.5.1)
Installed from:    FreeBSD Ports
OS:                FreeBSD

If a filename starts with a '#' character the file is shown as a folder.
Note that after renaming the file it is shown correct, but after a refresh it "is" a folder again.
This does not happen with sftp, file or other kio slaves.
I can reproduce this with an older kde version (3.4.2) and on a slackware 10.2 box.

The version kinfocenter is showing has to be wrong. I'll check that and open another bug report if i'm sure ;)
On the Slackware box kinfocenter says fish has version 1.1.1 (2002-06-23) which seems too old. 
The FreeBSD version shows 1.1.2 (2005-02-29) but according to the changelog using su for localhost has been implemented in 1.2.1. That way i tested that my version is not 1.1.2 but at least 1.2.1.

If you need more details or can give me a hint on the "wrong version thing" please contact me.

Not the same bug as 106648, I'm afraid.
