I believe the faulty component here is gmc, please change if I'm wrong.

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 2000-05-22 15:55:59 UTC
assigned to dcm

This will be updated within a couple of days with the next release of GNOME - it
will then go into Rawhide and you can grab it from there.

This is still a problem in gmc-4.5.51 (Pinstripe Public Beta) except that what
was labeled Edit->Find File is now Edit->search.

Comment 5 David Mason 2000-08-06 16:55:29 UTC
ok -thanks, we'll look into it!

Comment 6 Jonathan Blandford 2000-10-16 16:03:27 UTC
This is fairly obnoxious to fix.  It sometimes works (ie. pressing Ctrl-S and
then typing in a few letters gives you emacs-style searching) but sometimes the
URL bar has the keyboard focus.  That is when Ctrl-S does not work.

Anyway, gmc is not currently maintained.  This option could be removed, but the
current plan is to ship nautilus in the next release.
