As said above, the behavior I exposed is mostly the consequence of bugs
known by several years (if you read through the text I referenced the
problems by bug ID) and general bad UX design. The specific version of
Ark I'm using is 2.19, but again, it's not really relevant, since my
criticism is mostly in general design, Ark is virtually unchanged since
several years (yet, from what I read in the various bug comments, it
still haven't reached feature parity with pre-KDE4 Ark).
