Description of problem:
When connecting to a DAV remote share, nautilus displays "The folder
contents could not be displayed. Sorry, couldn't display all the
contents of "xxx".", xxx being the remote directory name.
The same share worked fine with the last 2.6 release of gnome-vfs2.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a remote DAV server link
2. Connect to the share
Actual Results: Nautilus displays an error, the window does not
display any files.
Expected Results: Display remote files
This only seems to happen when DAV is used via the http proxy server
configured in Main Menu->Preferences->Network Proxy. Disabling the
proxy makes DAV work again.
I did not change this setting for a long time, did gnome-vfs always
use the proxy for DAV?
I am trying to find out what differences the proxy makes.
That dialog lets you send all http requests through a central
proxy-server. gnome-vfs has used it for a while.
