Bug Description

Example:
have a dir with some more sub-dirs sorted by name:
/home/laza/Downloads/The Pixies/
Bossanova
Come On Pilgrim
Death To the Pixies (DISK 2)
Doolittle
Live @ The BBC
Subbacultcha
Surfer Rosa
Timless Stars
Trompe le Monde

now i wanna change the dirs names by the year of the release so:
- mark the wanted dir (Surfer Rosa)
- F2
- Home
- 1988.03[blank]
- Enter

so we have this:
/home/laza/Downloads/The Pixies/1988.03 Surfer Rosa
this dir is now first in order and marked (so far as expected)

now press again enter to look into the (changed and marked) dir:
/home/laza/Downloads/The Pixies/Subbacultcha/

WOOOOOhhhhh, what? It's an LTS!
And this is reproducable for all changes i made...

The "Pointer" = not marked but active directory is enter

BUT

as active is the changed dir marked.

IF it is coincidentially at the same position afterwards the right dir is entered - but this happens in 1 of 1000 times....
