Description of problem:
When navigating a directory structure in nautilus by double-clicking directories in the main (right-hand) pane, the selection in the left-hand tree pane is not kept synchronized with the directory shown in the right-hand pane. Whilst the left-pane tree structure is expanded to expose the directory of the right-hand pane within an expanded parent, the tree view is not scrolled to ensure that the directory is visible (which could simply be because of the incorrect selection)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double-click "Computer" on the Gnome desktop
2. Use the right-hand/main pane to navigate the directory tree, double-clicking directories to drill down directory by directory. As an example, navigate to the path /mnt/severn_photos/all_pro1/2005. Note that /mnt/severn_photos is a mount-point. This may/may-not be relevant.
Actual Results: Watch the selection in the left hand pane. It should be updated each time you double-click a directory in the right-hand pane, and the right-hand pane changes to a new directory. Instead, the tree selection is often left unchanged (even though an appropriate sub-tree is expanded). Also, the tree should be scrolled to make the right pane's current directory visible
Expected Results: Often (in all cases in my example path, except for the final 2005 directory), the tree focus is not updated to match the right pane's current directory, nor is the tree scrolled to expose the right pane's current directory.
I don't know if this is a requisite, but all the directories I navigated to in
the right hand pane were set to "View as List"
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.
Closing; N/A in F8 - Gnome seems to have changed the way things work.
