Package: xxdiff
Version: 1:3.1-3
Severity: normal

To recreate, create two directory structures:



The 'd' files are identical, but it doesn't matter exactly what the
contents are.

Invoke xxdiff:

xxdiff -r /tmp/a /tmp/a2

xxdiff correctly shows b/c in green, and doesn't highlight the 'd'
files because they are identical. However, if one right-clicks on b/c,
and selects 'Copy left file to right', nothing seems to happen. Then
quit xxdiff and re-start it with the same command. It is obvious (and
this is backed up by looking at the contents of the filesystem), that
c has been copied to /tmp/a2/. I'm not sure if this is the intended
behaviour, but it's obviously not particularly useful if the directory
structure in question is complex!

I think there are two problems here:

1. xxdiff should copy files to the correct subdirectory.
2. It should update the file listings straight away to show that
change, as it would if you were merging files (again, a look at the
filesystem shows the file is copied instantly).

Hope this helps. Thanks for packaging xxdiff - it's invaluable to me
