When returning to Browser, not all files in subfolders are shown

Maybe this is not exactly a bug, but it is undesired behavior (for me). To reproduce it, follow these steps:

1. Create the following files in the following directory structure:

/a/a.jpg
/a/b1/b1.jpg
/a/b2/b2.jpg

2. In XnView MP, go to Preferences > Interface > Switching mode and configure Use double click to switch between: Browser <> Viewer.

3. Open the picture a.jpg

4. Go to the Browser.

5. In the Browser, click the button "Show files in subfolder". As a result, a.jpg, b1.jpg, and b2.jpg will be shown in the Browser.

6. Double click the picture b1.jpg in the Browser. As a result, b1.jpg will be shown in the Viewer.

7. In the Viewer, double click the picture b1.jpg.

Expected result: a.jpg, b1.jpg, and b2.jpg will be shown in the Browser.
Actual result: Only b1.jpg will be shown in the Browser.

Using XnView MP 0.93.1 on Mac OS.

Ok, pressing ESC is an acceptable workaround. Topic can be closed.
