Who runs Aero on a server?)
Who does irrevocable file operations on a server?
There IS a major focus bug in the new explorer, and ppl WILL lose data over it.
Unless focus is changing without you clicking on things, it's not a bug, it's how it's designed. I couldn't get focus to change on just a mouseover, and I would expect the behavior you got from clicking where you clicked.
It could be slightly more obvious what's going on, but bottom line is, if you're going to shift-delete files on a server, you had better know EXACTLY what you're doing.
You are essentially complaining that Windows did what you told it to do, rather than what you wanted it to do.

No, but Explorer saying it will remove one thing and then go ahead and remove something else, that is bug and not just a small one.

Did you watch the video? Explorer clearly prompted for removing "New Folder" and then just want ahead and removed everything in the folder that *contained* "New Folder".
