Repobrowser testing

Hi folks,

A few oddities I noticed while using the repo browser.

1. Right click on column headings gives a context menu for the parent
folder (same as clicking in white space). I think that should only
happen in the whitespace area, like explorer.

2. Folders in the left pane seem to have [-] when unexpanded until you
try to open them. In explorer the default behaviour (for network
folders) is to use a [+] for all unexpanded nodes until they are
opened. Once the content is known you can put a [+] for nodes with
child folders and nothing for nodes with no child folders.

3. Extension is shown for files and folders. It looks a bit odd for
folders, especially when you use names like release-1.0 and get shown
an extension of .0 The CfM dialog hides extensions for folders.

4. The column headers do not have a marker to show which one is used
for sorting.

5. The folder which is shown in the right pane is not always the one
which is highlighted in the left pane (highlight = inverse in blue). I
don't have a recipe for this, but I have seen it several times. Once
the wrong item is highlighted you can then get 2 items highlighted at
once (left pane) which is confusing.

6. The right pane context menu for files has 'Save as' twice.

7. If you mark a folder for compare, right clicking on the same folder
should not show 'Compare URLs' or 'Unified diff'

8. Compare URLs gives the usual changed files dialog. If the 2 URLs
are too long to be displayed, it would be useful to show as a tooltip.

That's enough for now ;-)
