Automatically Refresh Filelist Upon Hashing Complete

Automatically Refresh Filelist Upon Hashing Complete. Would an option for this be a good idea / bad idea (i.e. is it worth me making a patch to submit to bugzilla). made me think of the need for it. :)

Shouldn't this be totally automatic, without even an option? One would think users would be expecting it even.

You do realize that your feature would mean that the file list need to be refreshed twice in a (relatively) short period of time? Once to let DC++ know you want a file hashed, and a second time to have the file shown in the file list. People with large shares might not like this.

Yes, I think that once hashing is complete, the safeguards in ShareManager::generateXmlList() should probably be bypassed.

Heh, I see the StrongDC forum isn't actively policed. I'd never let anyone get away with talking about sharing an album here...
