I don't see this on my machine. The strange thing is that it seems to crash in
gethostbyname_r, which is a glibc function.
Comment 3 Pavel 2003-09-08 05:40:42 EDT
I added 'wins' to hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf. When I remove it, nautilus
doesn't crash anymore. I'm using samba 3.0.0-5rc1 from rawhide.

After I remove 'wins', nautilus says that there is no default action for shares,
I'll open new bug for this.

Does this happen in fc3test3? This has a much changed smb backend.

Red Hat Linux is no longer supported by Red Hat, Inc. If you are still running
Red Hat Linux, you are strongly advised to upgrade to a current Fedora Core
release or Red Hat Enterprise Linux or comparable. Some information on which
option may be right for you is available at

Red Hat apologizes that these issues have not been resolved yet. We do want to
make sure that no important bugs slip through the cracks. Please check if this
issue is still present in a current Fedora Core release. If so, please change
the product and version to match, and check the box indicating that the
requested information has been provided. Note that any bug still open against
Red Hat Linux by the end of 2006 will be closed as 'CANTFIX'. Thanks again for
your help.
