security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

Still

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2017-08-13 16:14:41 UTC
Also breaks Nautilus drag'n'drop to Audacious in GNOME Shell.

Reverting to GNOME on Xorg as a workaround.

What's the full story here?

I think I have this bug too, with a few differences:

- within Nautilus, the bug is sporadic, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. It seems once it starts failing during a session, it keeps being broken until the end of the session.

- when a drop fails in Nautilus and I use cut/paste to move a file or folder, I then get a "can't access [source folder]" dialog box a long time later (like 1 or 2 minutes, which is an eternity in UX terms) as if the mouse-based drag-and-drop got stuck all that time.

- Nautilus to Chrome seems to work most of the time. I've wondered if the first Nautilus->Chrome drop is what breaks subsequent Nautilus->Nautilus drops, but I've not been able to prove it.

Comment 7 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 08:50:20 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
