Description of problem:
if i select all files in my home directory and let nautilus compute the contents size, it cycles itself in a range and never provides the final value that i expect
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. go to your home directory
2. make sure hidden files are displayed
3. select all and click properties
the contents field is never computed
the value in the contents field oscillates within a range, both number of items and the totaling value
"the value in the contents field oscillates within a range, both number of items and the totaling value" this belongs to Actual results.
The Expected results are that there's a final value of the contents field.
Do you have any symbolic link loop inside?
i guess no, since find -L ~ executes just fine and doesn't report any symlink loops
Can you report upstream then? Would be good to have a reproducer too.
I can reproduce it on my Fedora, when I select all files in .config and show properties. Interestingly, it works properly if I show properties for .config itself. This would be really nice to fix.
Item properties works correctly under nautilus-3.28.1-13.el8 with hidden files displayed.
