Renaming files outside Slsk causes "Rescan Shares" to occasionally "lose" files

OS = Linux. (Important because I suspect this to be a Linux-only issue) Hi, whilst reorganizing some of my older stuff, this has become a real issue here. I noticed missing spaces, rogue characters and other things that did not belong in these filenames, so I renamed the files in my terminal app (e. g. konsole) and did a RESCAN SHARES. Then I added myself to the Userlist so I could see how my share will look to others. From 10 files originally in my folder X, after renaming a few of them SlskQt only showed 5 files in the folder, telling me about "5 files" being "deleted" from the folder. (True because since I renamed them, they're regarded as "deleted".) - Rescan shares, deleting browse tab, browsing myself again ... still 5 files. Not until I fully restarted SlskQt, my "lost" files automagically came back. Even unsharing->resharing sometimes (but not always) does not bring back said files. Currently, app restart is the only way out.
