Great work. I'm tempted to make this my default navigator, because I like the small font a lot.

I can only think of 3 suggestions for small improvements:
- make the sorting case-insensitive
- fix the bug where if there's an '&' in the directory path, the directory and any subdirectories won't be shown in the full path at the top of the screen (i.e. "SDCARD/Books/SC & E/Java" shows up as "SDCARD/Books")
- (if not too much work) use partial refreshes for selection
Ok, in the first post there is a new package with issue #2 fixed and built with case-insensitive sorting by default (#1). Later I will add an option in the preferences.

Regarding partial refreshes (#3), I don't know how to achieve it.
In my DR800, moving cursor makes a partial refresh or a complete screen refresh randomly. It should be handled by IREX patched gtk+ libs automatically. IREX docs says that the refresh engine would make the proper action depending on the "size of the updated portion of the screen" (sic).
