Description Matthew Mott 2004-11-21 16:26:14 EST
Description of problem:
Frequently when browsing an FTP server with nautilus, an attempt to open a
folder causes the error "Folder contents could not be displayed" after a very
short delay. Usually the folder contents can be accessed after a number of
attempts. It would appear that Nautilus is "giving up too easily" with too short
a timeout, rather than waiting for the contents to appear.

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

How reproducible:
Occurs frequently, but not predictably. Tested with download.fedora.redhat.com.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The ftp method in gnome-vfs has gotten some work since 2.8. 

However, if you see this still, please open a bug against gnome-vfs in
bugzilla.gnome.org with the details. That way all the upstream developers can
see it.
