Creating an email and adding a photo named Untitled1.jpg from the desktop will show the attachment correctly, if you then alter Untitled1.jpg and remove the attachment from the email and re-attach Untitled1.jpg it will still show the old version of Untitled1.jpg.

This happens with an attachment, we have had problems with Word documents being sent as the old version.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a jpg with "test 1" in the image, save as Untitled1.jpg
2. Create a new email and attach Untitled1.jpg
3. Alter Untitled1.jpg to be "test 2", overwrite
4. Remove the attachment from the email
5. Attach Untitled1.jpg again

Actual Results:  
Untitled1.jpg still shows as "test 1", the old file was cached

Expected Results:  
Untitled1.jpg should show as "test 2", to get the expected result you can close thunderbird and open it again, creating a new email will now show the correct attachment.

Just checked it in version 2 beta 1 (20061206), still the same issue.

version 3 beta 1 (20061214) won't accept images to be dragged into the email
Version: unspecified → 1.5
Reporter, could you please test with the latest supported 2.0.0.x / trunk nightlies and see if the issue still occurs?
