Short description of error
When I simply access a folder that contains a photoshop file, at least in thumbnail mode, as well as trying to open the file for viewing or using it as a texture, Blender turn the file in a ZERO kb file, essentially deleting it. Luckily I haven't been keeping my original file on the working folder but at one point this will be catastrophic and I'll lose an original file.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
Simply open Blender, go to file browser (maybe change it to thumbnails), and access a folder on systems like mine that contains a photoshop file. This doesn't seem to happen on windows. All photoshop files on that folder will be zeroed out and it's unrecoverable, nor there is any message.
I have tested this on many photoshop files (not intentionally, I always just forget that there's this huge bug and to make sure any folder I'm viewing doesn't have a photoshop file). All of them became zero kb and I had to find the source to recover.
I'm not sure why I haven't seen people complaining about it but this is pretty major.
