Description Shannon Johnson 2005-06-06 16:12:09 UTC
Description of problem:
The trash folder works when the home directory is a smbfs filesystem, but not
when the home directory is a cifs file system. (see also <a

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount home directory via cifs.
2. Delete something.
3. Note no change in Trash icon, and notice nothing in the trash:/// uri.
Actual results:
When a file is deleted from the CIFS home directory, the file
is moved to ~HOME/.Trash, but the icon doesn't change, and the file doesn't show
up in the trash:/// window. When a file is deleted locally, it's moved to
/tmp/.trash-user and does show up in the trash:/// window.

Expected results:
When a file is deleted from the CIFS home directory, I'd
expect it to show up in the trash:/// uri, and the icon to change.
