Thanks for the report and the useful video. I'm not sure whether I find the time to fix this until 4.9.0 but as I consider it as quite ugly issue I'll try hard to fix this during the 4.9.x cycle.

Make use of the "resort all items timer" in KFileItemModel::slotRefreshItems
to avoid too much expensive resorting calls, in case of many refresh items signals.
