Summary0015884: Pasting to an empty directory fails
DescriptionIf the user selects and copies a bunch of files in MM5 and then navigates to an empty folder:
a) there's no context menu to allow the user to paste the files
b) CTRL-V has no effect

There is a workaround, but it's limited to users using the Tree: Open the tree and right-click > Paste on the destination directory.
TagsNo tags attached.
Fixed in build2255

This isn't working correctly for me in build 2193-A
1 Go to Music > Artist > ArtistName [Browser View]
2 Select 2 tracks from the List view and CTRL-C
3 Go to Home > Folders > NearEmptyDirectory
4 Right-click in empty space
--> no context command appears allowing the tracks to be pasted!!
5 CTRL-V to paste the tracks
--> Nothing happens most of the time!!
6 Trigger a refresh of the Folder view by exiting the folder and then going back to it
--> The track appears (most of the time)

I wonder, though, if the first issue is somehow related to the DB problems at 0015914 since if I use the recursive folders function, it results in a crash. i.e.:
1 Go to Music > Artist > ArtistName [Browser View]
2 Select 2 tracks from the List view and CTRL-C
3 Go to Home > Folders > NearEmptyDirectory (All)
--> Crash

Note that 7CC8812F is flase positive assertion in the internal updated build sent to Rusty (there was a bug in the new debug code)

Retested in 2221 and this still isn't resolved for me. There's no longer a crash, but right click in Folders > Path > Empty directory still doesn't show a context menu AND CTRL-V has no effect.

Re-opened, while it works there are some random issues:

1) 'Paste Ctrl+V' context menu item is often disabled on initial right-click of the empty area
Workaround 1: wait several seconds before the right-click
Workaround 2: right-click the empty area again and the Paste item gets enabled immediatelly

2) updates under the Folders node takes several seconds and the updates are often somehow broken until user navigates to the folder again (or F5 is pressed)
Namely it duplicates the already existing tracks instead of showing the new one (until F5 is pressed), the same issue happens when using D&D, to be figured out what is going on...

Verified both CTRL-V and Context Menu > Paste (other than the delayed appearance of context menu entries) in 2255.
