The file size is not being updated while the copy is in progress. Even
when the copy is done, the file size is shown wrong. I have to leave
the directory and go back afterward to see the correct file size.

Yes. And using the refresh button makes no change.

I had this some weeks before. After creating a new "home folder" the
problem has gone. And there is another user on my machine: When I
switch to this account the file size ist updated after the copy and the
correct file size is shown.
