Lightroom: LR4 Expanded Cell View - Folder Does Not Update (Win7 x64)

If I drag and drop one or more video files from one folder to another within LR4 using the 'Folders' pane/panel, the Thumbnail does not update to show the new folder name. e.g. If file 00010 starts in folder 'Uncategorized' and I drag and drop it into the folder 'Vacations', the thumbnail still shows 'Uncategorized'. I know that the drag and drop was successful, because I can click on the Vacations folder and see the video file there. In order to have the display reflect the true folder name, I need to quit LR4 and then start it again.

In View Options I have 'Show Grid Extras' checked and 'Expanded Cells' selected. Under the heading Expanded Cell Extras I have 'Index Number', Copy Name or File Base Name, Cropped Dimensions, and Folder selected.

Bug reproduced here in 3.6 and 4.0 (with an image file, not video). And not just in expanded cell view, but also in compact vide.

It does update if you restart Lightroom, though.

I observed this as well (with image files). Frankly, it is the least of my worries with LR.

It is for me too (as I don't move files around at all, thus I never noticed it), but it's still a bug and it's nice if we report it.
