Description of problem:
Nautilus scrolls the right-pane when a file is selected and the user presses F2 to rename it, even though the selected item is already visible.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a nautilus window on a directory with enough entries to require a vertical scroll-bar. Ensure "View as List" is selected as the view mode.
2. Wait for all file information to be filled in (e.g. directory "Size" entries) - just to eliminate interaction with the bugs with asynchronous updates.
3. Scroll the list to the very top, so the first entry is visible.
4. Select, say, entry 5 in the list of files.
5. Press F2 to rename that file
Actual Results: The right pane is scrolled so that the selected file is the very first row visible, and rename mode is entered.
Expected Results: Rename mode should be entered without scrolling the view. There's no need to scroll, because the selected file is already visible, and the scrolling is very annoying - the window scrollbar is already position where the user wants it.
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; fixed in F8
