Yes (at least this was the behavior in KDE 3.x and KDE 4.0).

On KDE 4.1 the only thing that is needed to get it work is to exchange one 
line of code:

Index: kfile/kdiroperator.cpp

     if (selectDir) {
     } else {
-        parent->selectFile(item);
+        parent->highlightFile(item);

which means reverting svn commit 836195. I'm not sure whether backporting your 
changes from svn commit 838000 is a good idea, as the fixes are non-trivial 
and I think not enough tested yet to be sure that no side effects have been 

I've not tested yet whether changing the one line is also sufficient on trunk, 
so it would be great if you can check whether the fix also works in 
combination with your cleanups from svn commit 838000.

Currently I'm mainly asking whether I can apply the patch above on the 4.1 
trunk (we have 6 months left on trunk to fix this in a nice way ;-)).

Thanks in advance!
