800 - Bug in Duplicates File Search

FCXE v800 donor on Win7

Search for duplicate files/folders sometimes reports files that have no duplicates as if they do.

I have "Find duplicate files" and "Same content (MD5 sum)" enabled. No other options under "Search criteria" are enabled (except "Same size", which is enabled and dimmed.)

The Search results pane shows a single 57KB text file, and the status bar reports "Found 1 file(s) in 1 group(s)".

It's clearly an error, as FCXE is reporting that it found 1 file, but it should always find at least 2 files if there is a duplicate.

There are 27 files in the folder, ranging in size from 48 bytes to 1.25MB.

There are no actual duplicate files in the folder, despite what FCXE is reporting.

Have you created MD5 sum of all files and checked if you can find two same sums?

Yes, all MD5 checksums are unique.

I found that even simply placing 1 file in a folder, FCXE will often determine it is a duplicate... even though it is the only file.
