Description Frank Reininghaus 2013-08-14 22:05:44 UTC
The problem is that KFileItemModel::setData() only re-sorts the model if the "sort role" is changed. However, in some cases, also the name matters.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir test && cd test && touch a b c && dolphin .
2. Sort by size -> the order of the items is "a b c" because the name is used as a fallback (all files have zero size).
3. Rename "a" -> "d".

Actual Results:  
Note that the items are not resorted: "d b c"

Expected Results:  
The items should be resorted: "b c d"

Make sure that the sort order is correct after renaming

KFileItemModel::setData() should not only cause a resorting when the
sort role is changed. The name is always used as a fallback if the sort
role of multiple files is equal, therefore, renaming a file can change
the correct order of the files even if the files are not sorted by

Unit test included.
