Description of problem:
I have nautilus and inkscape installed on my system. I just downloaded the openclipart.org collection 0.15 and extracted it to a folder.
As soon as I enter the shapes sub directory inside this collection nautilus crashes.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a nautilus browser window
2. direct it to the shapes directory
Actual Results: It crashed and a dialog poped up informing me about it.
Expected Results: Well, it should display the content in a browse view.
Its likely that this is due to a specific image. Could you try to find exactly
which one is triggering the bug. An easy way would be to copy half the files to
another directory and load that, if it doesn't crash, try the other half. You
now know which half the problematic file is in, so start over by dividing those
files in half.
I tested it with various collections of images. Take about 1000-10000 images. :) I am not running Linux
on my desktop machine after switching to a Mac. Sorry, but so I can't verify it for you.
Its likely a bug reading a specific file, so without information as to what file
is causing this we can't fix it. :(
