Nautilus Progress Bar when copying large amounts/large files goes to 100% prematurely
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:32 EST
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):
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
Progress bar shows its done before it is
Progress bar should gradually fill up

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