Change file attribute on multiple file selection ?

Running Version 0.90 64bits (Mar 4 2018), on a W10 PC.
When inside browser, folder view, I select several images that are set Read-only.
Then Right+click and select Properties, and un-check the Read-only box.
But it seems that only the first file in the selection receive the attribute change, all other files are still Read-only.

I would like this operation to work like using the ordinary W10 File explorer.

First tested with 0.90 and confirmed the bug.
Then tested with 0.91 beta 4, still the same behavior.

Made a testdir.
Copied 3 files to this dir and set the read-only bit with Explorer.
Then in XnViewMP 0.91 beta 4, selected the 3 files in Browser, rightclick, Properties, unchecked Read-only.
In Explorer the first file is not read-only anymore, the other two are still read-only.

A bit late testing...
Tested with the same procedure in version 0.92, fixed.

All three files with the read-only bit set with explorer can now be changed at once with XnViewMP.
After selecting the three files, choose properties, unchecking read-only, the files are not read-only anymore.
Also setting them read-only at once with XnViewMP works.
