Small bug in Rox... Sorry not a bug my mistake
Edit: It isn't a bug. Just for the record I searched it a bit more and then I saw that in a folder which has files less than 4096 bytes the properties windows counts it as 4096 bytes when the count command counts it as smaller. So the difference is normal since 4096 bytes = 2^12 bytes is the block size and though the least allocated by the system for each file. From the other hand count, counts the exact size of the files.
I've noticed a tiny bug in Rox-filer or at least I believe that is Rox bug. Please check also if it happens to you and tell me whether is definitely Rox bug, as I believe, in order to report it at the Rox bug tracker.
Ok about the bug now, I noticed it yesterday while making the an opera pet. If you right click over a folder and then select count the size is always reported less than what actually is. If you select properties it reports the correct size. I noticed it because pet spec is always reporting different size (always more) than the right click --> count, and yesterday I checked with right click --> properties and the reported size complies with the one reported in pet spec. Maybe you think that the difference is not huge and I agree but there is, so I believe that we must correct it.
Is it Rox-filer's bug or something else is wrong? I checked and always happens.
Ok because a picture worths thousand words I've also attached a pic that shows the difference.
