Bug ID: 14331
           Summary: Thunar doesn't update thumbnail previews or sort order
                    of changed symlinks
    Classification: Xfce Core
           Product: Thunar
           Version: 1.6.10
          Hardware: Other
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
  Target Milestone: 1.8.0

When you open a symlink and change the file, the file preview/thumbnail for the
source file is updated and re-sorted (when in order by Modified Date), but the
symlink you've selected and changed appears unchanged in both preview and sort

When you change a file that has a symlink pointing to it, the preview and sort
order of the changed file updates, but the preview and sort order of the
symlink does not.

This is also reflected in the rename dialogue. When you go to rename the
symbolic link of the changed file, it shows the old thumbnail preview.

To test this simply find an image, create a symbolic link. Open the symbolic
link (or the original file) and modify it. You will see the original file
re-sort and update its thumbnail preview, but not the symbolic link. You can
also try to rename the symlink and see that the thumbnail preview in the
dialogue box is not updated.

This is just a request to have symlinks update alongside their source file when
that source file is modified. Thanks.
