Bad implementation of the folder rename

Sometimes the folder cannot be renamed.

But also when the folder can be renamed from the Folders tree, instead of just changing the value in the Folders table, the directory is just rescanned again which can be problematic especially if the folder is big.

Also, in the Favourites Tree View it will let you rename a folder but it won't actually rename the folder on the disk!

Thank you for your checking and reporting back, m.Th.. A crash is not quite the expected result. :?

Does the crash occur with renaming of a folder? Could you please provide more info so that other people and Pierre can try to reproduce it?
