Error updating Document List on multi-file save

I've found a little interesting bug in my copy Zeus 3.97. I edited a bunch of files and when I brought up the Document List (Alt-V for me) the Status column was all '*'s, to indicate that there are unsaved changes. This is cool. This is *GOOD* UI!

Then I highlighted all the changed files and did Alt-S to save them all. All the '*'s disappeared (as expected) but so did the Encoding column for all my files (ASCII and UTF-8, nothing fancy there).

In fact, I just checked it now and even if a file hasn't been changed (no '*') and I do Alt-S then the Encoding disappears and the [Save] button is greyed out.

Closing the Document List window and re-opening it brings everything back as normal.

Just thought I'd mention it.

Excellent! I'm just surprised that I never noticed this before now!

The Encoding column was added in version 3.97 and it is this change that introduced the bug :(

What s going on is when the file is saved the Status column is reset by blanking out the text found at column four. But because the Encoding column was added the Status column is no longer at column location four ;)
