[BZ#720965] Apply view options to cached results if possible
Submitted by bug..@..net
After comparing a pair of directories, changing any of the view options causes Meld to rescan. It doesn't ask or anything, just starts chewing away.
I can understand how toggling 'ignore case' might necessitate rescanning both directories. I can also understand how toggling File Filters might require a rescan. However, I do not understand how changing the File Status [Same, New, Modified] options necessitates a rescan.
Shouldn't Meld be able to apply File Status view changes to the currently displayed tree? These options don't affect the comparison - just the view, right?
