Description Steven Harms 2003-10-15 01:50:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Progress bar moves to end prematurely.  Ex.  It looks like after only a few
files that it is finished when it has over 1000 more to go.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Nautilus 2.4.0

How reproducible:
Copy a large amount of files, or a folder, from one place to another.  In this
instance I copied a mp3 folder from my ntfs partition to my fedora desktop.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy a folder
Actual results:
Progress bar shows its done before it is

Expected results:
Progress bar should gradually fill up

The progress bar should clearly not be anywhere near done.  This actually
happens after the first few but I didnt get around to making a screenshot of it
until the 100th or so file.

Does this happen even when you copy from a non-ntfs partition?
I just tried copying /usr/lib to ~/newdir, and i didn't see this.
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-10-15 05:24:17 EDT
Also, i think we progress according to size, not file-count, so maybe you had a
very large file first, or perhaps the file-size handling on NTFS is buggy.

Screenshot of progress bar from local harddrive to local harddrive

Here is a screenshot produced by copying a folder by right clicking it, hitting
copy, then going up 1 level and pasting it.  Also note that the folder has 170
items, ranging from the largest of 440mb, down to the smallest of 512k, with a
total of 8.2GB worth of files.	The average filesize is around 60mb.  Partition
is ext3.

I believe this has been fixed in recent versions of gnome-vfs. Reopen if you see
this in rawhide/FC6.
