Description: When the FILEBROWSER updates it should make more of an effort to keep the part of the display visible before the update visible afterwards.'
For instance, I renamed Init.dontload to Init.lisp.  After the update the display started with Active.MAIL again!  I would  have preferred to have seen Init..lisp instead.
