Progress on moving or deleting files never starts

I'm having a problem with Pathfinder 6 on every time I need to move a file to the trash or another directory that requires permissions (out of root folder or Applications directory). After I enter my administrative credentials, the progress cue just hangs. Has anyone seen this before? I'm on OS X 10.7.4

    I also tracked down something that might be related to this one and it's easy to reproduce (at least on v6.0.2b):

    1. Mount a DMG
    2. Drag it from the Sidebar to a folder on the browser, so it copies it as a folder
    3. Drag it again to the same location and choose Replace
    4. The transfer hangs and never starts
    5. Cancel the transfer
    6. Quit and relaunch PF
    7. A crash log shows up

    I'll file a bug report.

    Unfortunately, this is a bug in the OS X, confirmed on both 10.6.8 and 10.7.4. Apple has been informed. If they don't fix it soon enough we may introduce a fix to cover this particular case, but that would require some rewrite of the copy engine.
