Not yet, but I will, when I have a little spare time. I started to do so, 
but it seems the bug depends on which directory I view, so I want to isolate 
the specific file that is responsible for this. First I thought it had to do 
with my German localization, because it did not happen when I set the 
language to English, but apparently I was in another directory then.

I usually report bugs when they are so clearly reproducible as in this case. 
And being a Gentoo user, I can also offer to build stuff with debug 
information in order to produce better reports, in case it does not 
reproduce for others.

Ah, what the heck, I filed it:

That would be great, solving two problems at once.

Hehe :) I like the Grateful Dead for their great music, and because there's 
tons of live recordings on the net for free - they did not mind, and that's 
cool. So I'm grateful for the Dead. 
For the folder, well, I have some 56 subfolders in my movie clips directory, 
there's a category for everything. But yes, I find drugs and especially 
psychedelics highly, um, interesting indeed. Not doing them often myself, 
but I could need some now, as the other things crashing apart from Dolphin 
and Gwenview are my car (it died two days ago) and now my phone.
