This is both good and bad. Good that I finally have validation for problems I had encountered with dolphin which some in the community had called me troll/FUD for stating and bad that another is experiencing the problem. Here is what I have found with my system and my workarounds:

Thusly, if you copy files or folders as groups, not all will appear at the destination right away. Close Dolphin and reopen and sometimes they will now show. other times it takes a reboot before they show. Other times you have to re-copy the filesIMHO someone has dropped the ball here. Dolphin did not exhibit this behavior before when using 11.1 32bit/KDE 4.3.1 but does when using 11.1 64bit/KDE 4.3.1, 11.2 32/64bit/KDE >=4.3.1.
When you change a file a back-up is normally created but does not show up immediately all the time. If you immediately try to open another file for editing (and the back-up hasn't shown) you will at times suddenly get a box asking how the backup should be opened instead of the file you requested. You simply cancel the open and re-select the file you want.
When you move files Dolphin will on occasion delete the file from the source location and fail to add it in the destination resulting in a lost file(s). Resolve, use CLI or midnight commander or another file manager at all times for moves!!
