Very nasty bug with Right-Click + Copy/Move

Steps:

0. Have the following structure: Folder1 with images in it and some subfolders SF1, SF2, etc. (tested on the network; I think that the same bug appears locally)
1. Select some images from Folder1
2. Right click on (one of) the selected images and choose "Cut" (or Copy)
3. Right click on one of the subfolders - let's say on SF2. From the right-click menu choose "Paste"

Expected:
The selected images from step 2 should go in SF2.

Actual:
The selected images go (again) into Folder1 and if the user chooses "Cut" as operation and "Replace (All)" as option for the dialog which appear, then all the images are lost.

The right-click is very misleading and can generate data loss. Please fix this!

Why this isn't set to 'true' by default ?

Please do. Anyone and his mother today expects an Explorer-like behavior. We just do not have the power to fight this standard.

But in windows explorer, it's the same behavior (without pasteIntoSubfolder=true)

Just tested again.

1. Ctrl+C over a file
2. Go to a structure like
RootFolder
---Subfolder 1
---Subfolder 2
---Subfolder 3
3. Select Subfolder 2 from RootFolder \ Subfolder 2, Right-Click and choose Paste

For me, (Windows 7 Enterprise) the file will end in Subfolder 2 and not in RootFolder.

Right, but if you use Ctrl+V, the behavior is different, and the file is always copied in RootFolder...

Sooo... we have different behavior between Ctrl+V and RMB\Paste. Hum. Very confusing.
