Description of problem:
The file open dialog left hand box gets corrupted. It should list:
but instead it lists:
The "doc" has replaced "Filesystem".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Launch gedit with modified rc.local (see below)
2. Hit the "open" button.
3. Observe the dialog box.
Actual Results: The left part says "doc" in place of "Filesystem".
Expected Results: It should list "Filesystem", and should not list
"doc" at all.
I have the following lines in my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:
mount --bind /usr/share/doc /var/ftp/doc
mount --bind /mnt/caddy/public /var/ftp/pub
If I run gedit, observe the problem, then "umount /var/ftp/doc" and
launch the file open dialog again (without even restarting gedit) the
problem goes away. The problem always happens to "doc", regardless of
the ordering of the mounts in the rc.local file.
BTW this ftp site is available to a local LAN only.
This bug only seems to appear when running getit under GNOME. Under
KDE the "file dialog" works OK.
The bug may be in GNOME rather than gedit, in which case other "file
open" dialogs may be impacted as well.
This bug was actually in gnome-vfs, and it has been fixed:
Any chance of getting the fix via an FC2 update ? This one is causing
me much grief.
We're not likely to do an update for this. You can try gnome-vfs2
from rawhide. It seems fixed there.
