Public bug reported:

PcManFm file renaming is problematic.  I use Detailed List view and
Openbox 'Raise windows when mouse pointer moves over them' setting
although I am not sure if the latter is part of the problem.

If I try to rename or delete a file by right-clicking file to open
context menu, sometimes when clicking rename or delete, it selects a
different file to rename.  Not sure if related to Openbox setting above
but it did not do this in earlier PcManFm versions (non-lxqt) using the
same setting.

This is very problematic if it deletes the wrong file and annoying if
you have to try 2-3 times to rename a file.

2) Also, the pop-up asking you if you want to copy or move a file is
unnecessary and very annoying.  Pls. disable or have an option in
settings to disable it.  FM worked perfectly before that.

3) Middle-click to open bookmark in new tab is great BUT should move
focus/open on new tab, not stay on old tab since the purpose of opening
a bookmark is to access the files in this new tab.

The LXQT version of file manager is not currently an improvement.
