Description of problem:
If I point nautilus to a particular directory, and then open up a
terminal and move that directory, and then go back to nautilus and hit
the "up" button, then nautilus crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open up nautilus and go to some directory.
2. Open a terminal and move the same directory.
3. Go back to nautilus and hit the "up" button.
Actual Results: Nautilus crashes.
Expected Results: I expected it to not crash.
The problem does not occur when moving the directory that nautilus is
pointing to, but when moving the parent directory.
I don't see a crash, but I see nautilus display an error message and
close. The message is "<dir> couldn't be found. Perhaps it has
recently been deleted.".
This also happens on Debian Sarge with nautilus version 2.4.2-2.
This problem is also known upstream. I suggest to follow this bug
upstream, and forget it here.
