Description P Jones 2000-04-21 10:12:59 EDT
When GMC has a window open, and you drag a URL (as from netscape, or and
existing one from the desktop) and right click and choose "properties", it
identifies it as a URL and allows you to work with it properly.

If you then double click on the name, and change then name, it then becomes
a "text file" and not URL.  GMC should preserve the type as URL as it does
if you rename it on the desktop instead of in a directory.

Also, In the directory, a URL file named "http://bugzilla.redhat.com" on
the desktop, when draged to a directory, might be named something like
"urlIOIGkwF", adding to the need to rename it.

yeah -- this is a hard problem that can't be fixed with gmc.  The problem with
that is that '/' is a special character, so something like
'http://bugzilla.redhat.com/' won't fly as a filename.  Also, the internals of
GMC aren't well suited for displaying that well.  Unfortunately, you'll have to
wait until nautilus before you'll be able to get that handled correctly.
