Sometimes dragging and dropping pdfs into Zotero deletes original file

I use Zotero under Linux. When I drag and drop a pdf from a File-manager into Zotero sometimes the file disappears from the original folder, the rest of the time the original copy stays where it was. I have not found out what different circumstances might trigger the different behaviour.

Did anybody else experience this behaviour? Any solutions or workarounds?
  • This should only happen if you hold down Shift while dragging, which causes Zotero to move files into Zotero instead of copying them.

    I have been able to reproduce this behavior (without Shift) sporadically on Windows, but I've not been able to track down the cause.
  • Fixed in the 4.0 Beta, I believe. (Let me know if not.)
