Thanks but this is about something else altogether , it's the unhide in relationship to this feature

While it's a great feature I just think it's something the user should be able to disable/enable as desired or in some cases needed
And this is likely an opinion that'll fly like a lead balloon...

I'm totally with Doug. Trying to move a folder from home to a bookmark with a short name (think 'www'), causes unhide and makes it impossible to finish the move.
