Default Last track in the folder image left behind - UI bug

There seems to be a little bug in how the last track in the folder image behaves, both in TCP and MCP. This seems to be only a UI related visual bug, otherwise Reaper funtions correctly regarding the folder behavior. I tested this down to v4.01 so I guess it's been here all thru v4. For the same reason, it may be said it's not really a bug but something not completely implemented.

To reproduce, you have to have at least three tracks in the project.
1. Create at least three tracks.
2. Set the first track as a parent.
3. Set second to last track as the last track in the folder.
4. Cycle the first track back to being a regular track.

What happens is that there are no child tracks anymore, yet the earlier last track in the folder still shows the last track in the folder image (track_folder_last). You'll have to click that image to get rid of it.

What I think should happen is that once there is no more folder, there shouldn't be any visual reminder of it either and no separate actions needed to get rid of it. As it is now, it might get a little confusing seeing these folder images left behind, unless you go and separately clean them up.

Here's a screencap showing what is happening:


I tried to search old topics and reports, but couldn't find this thing.

Confirmed.

There seem to be a lot of bugs regarding folders.

Another one is with unfoldering tracks - other folders are put out of their folder structure:



The blue folder track is the one I will change. I click the the X to stop making it a folder.



Two issues:

1. the green folder and it's tracks are no longer children of the red folder
2. the two blue children of the blue folder track are now children of the red folder.. but the orange folder was next in line to parent them and was skipped.

Expected result: http://puu.sh/cYxMQ/0297cdbe71.png

Here is another related bug:
http://forum.cockos.com/project.php?issueid=4337

That bug, my bug(s), and your bug should probably be combined into one bug report, they seem pretty related.

Thanks for confirming Fergler. You're right, all these folder issues seem related and could/should go into one comprehensive report. I'm bit tight on time right now, so if you feel like combining them, please do. Otherwise I may be able to do that later.

One advantage of this is that if a folder is accidentally changed to a normal track, you don't have to struggle to figure out what the last track was meant to be. I guess there'd always Undo, if you catch it quickly enough.

Selfish bump because this was infuriating me today, really hoping this gets addressed for any upcoming version but especially for v5
