A script to update a hard drive's free space value

I don't see this problem on Tiger. If I make a copy of a file when the info page of the HD is open, the free space gets updated correctly. Is this a pre Tiger issue?

not the "Get Info" free space, this is the Finder "Show View Options" while the desktop is selected, there is a "Show Item Info" checkbox, that will display below the name of any connected Volumes the amount of free space...

and this bug has existed since Apple introduced the feature in 10.3
