[maemo-users] Folder visibility in integrated file manager

I just got my new, shiny N900 and updated it to firmware release Maemo 5 

I attached my N900 via USB and copied some files / folders to it.
The N900's internal file manager only shows a random subset of these 
folders. I read the manual but found no indication as of which files / 
folders it displays and which it doesn't.

For example, I created a folder called "musik" (all lower-case ASCII 
letters). This folder did not show up in the file manager, however its 
contents were indexed by the media player. I opened an X-terminal, 
renamed this folder to "Musik2" ("mv musik Musik2") and back to "musik" 
("mv Musik2 musik") and afterwards it was visible in the file manager.

Where can I find or who can give me an explanation of this behaviour?

Thanks in advance,
