Description Martin Simon 2016-01-15 06:54:08 EST
Description of problem:
After I do a Cut action above a file/folder in remote SMB folder in nautilus and paste it somewhere, nautilus does not refresh the SMB file list despite the fact that the file was correctly moved. It ends in belief that the move (cut & paste combo) failed, but any other action above the file in remote SMB file will fail as the file was not found.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to remote SMB with nautilus
2. Create a folder/file if not already
3. Click on the file and press Control + x key combination
4. Open any local folder and press Control + v

Actual results:
The file is moved, but the source nautilus window is not refreshed (the file remains visible there)

Expected results:
The file is moved and the source nautilus window is refreshed (the file should disappear)

Additional info:
Cut&paste from NFS remote folder works fine
