I found out that if I save a file to ~/ from any program with ~/ open
nautilus doesn't refresh automatically. so I changed it over to a
nautilus bug. 
Comment 2 Julien Olivier 2004-04-07 10:08:45 EDT
Actually, Nautilus doesn't seem to refresh its windows at all.
However, it refreshes the desktop automatically.

I've checked, and fam is running in the background.

PS: I think you should change the summary of the bug, as it is not
related to file-roller at all.

In Bug #119901, Dan Williams said:

"FAM has been disabled for a while due to
SELinux (FAM seems to be a security hole you could drive a truck
through), and this is being discussed.  Becuase so much of the desktop
depends on FAM being active, its probably going to be re-enabled for
FC2 Test 3, we're not sure."

If it's true (which i don't doubt), that explains why Nautilus doesn't
refresh its windows. But that doesn't explain why it *does* refresh
the desktop automatically and why it still doesn't refresh its windows
after I have manually launched fam as root...
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2004-04-16 12:04:33 EDT
fam is reenabled now.
Comment 5 Scott Sloan 2004-04-16 21:25:40 EDT
After the latest development builds (Apr 16th), Nautilius still
doesn't refresh it's windows, with fam enabled.

[scott@curran103 scott]$ ps auxw | grep -i fam
scott     3076  0.0  0.0  4808  604 pts/2    R    20:29   0:00 grep -i fam

again to cause this bug, I right click on a compress file, select
"extract here" and am forced to ctrl+R
Comment 6 Scott Sloan 2004-04-17 16:08:38 EDT
It's fixed in Apr 17 builds
Comment 7 Scott Sloan 2004-05-06 12:29:10 EDT
This is broken again in test3
