I think that checking only the selected directory is not a good
solution; consider these two examples:

If the path of the last column of the browser is, for example,
"/home/enrico/Grivei/sviluppo/FileManagers/Gworkspace" and you delete or
move to an other location "/home/enrico/Grivei/sviluppo", the viewer must
cut the columns at "/home/enrico/Grivei/".

As on openstep, you can view the contents of an app wrapper, let's say
"/usr/GNUstep/Local/Apps/ProjectCenter.app", only if you
choose "Open as Folder" from the "File" menu. (or alt->double-click on
the icon).

This creates a new viewer window in which, the first column of the browser 
is /usr/GNUstep/Local/Apps/ProjectCenter.app.

Now, if you delete from a terminal this directory or one of its parents,
the new viewer window must close.
