MTP-Problem: Application lists local notebook files instead of PhoneMemory (Win 8.1)

Not a severe problem, but at least a litle bit disturbing :-) Connected my Jolla via PC-Connection to my win 8.1 Machine (to use great working new "two drives"-functionality - thanks sailors!!!). Opened \Sailfish\Phone Memory\Pictures\Camera, saw a correct listing of all the JPG-Files in there and clicked the first one. Irfanview openes an shows the picture. Everything ok. But now, clicking the "next"-Button in IrfanView Irfanview scans not through the Camera-dir, but through C:\Users\me\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\INetCache\IE\XXXXX-Dir. Have to copy pictures to local disk, to scan them the usual way. Any setting available, to solve this? Thanks a lot

From Windows, you cannot open any of the files on the phone (not even a simple text file), all have to be copied to the Windows "domain" first. Irfanview did so automatically. The Jolla device is rather comparable to an FTP server than to a mobile storage device (like USB stick etc.).

Would be interesting to know, whether a notebook with Linux sees the Jolla device in a different light (I do not expect so).
