[openbeos] Re: Incorrect File Sizes

From the BeBook, I found two ways to get the file size.

BStatable::GetSize()
BStatable::GetStat()

Not much is said about either method.  However, it looks like they return
just the regular size.

It's simple to get the size of a file's attributes.  I think it would make
more sense if tracker displayed the total file size.
