Description John Courie II 2006-01-22 23:30:48 EST
When moving files from usb hdd mounted at /media/disk to /home/<foo> 
after a few moments the nautilus window crashes.  When nautilus is launched from
a window this is the output after the crash: 

"rejecting I/O to dead device"


Fedora Core 5 test 2 
Linux version 2.6.15-1.1826.2.10_FC5 (bhcompile@hs20-bc1-1.build.redhat.com)

Nautilus is: 2.13.3

How reproducible:  Select a directory located in /media/disk and cut or copy it
and then paste it to /home/you/<foo>

Also, The Storage Device is not dead - and comes back on line after rebooting.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2006-01-23 04:07:28 EST
Exactly how does the kernel fault? Does the usb drive just not work anymore, or
does more things happen?

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

I still don't understand exactly what happens, could you describe the problem in
a bit more detail? You say it comes back after rebooting, does that mean it
actually goes offline when nautilus crashes.

What is the backtrace from nautilus when it crashes?

Does copying the file with cp work? 

Do you get any logs in /var/log/messages when this happens?
Comment 5 John Courie II 2006-09-04 18:52:11 EDT
The bug has not manifested in the later releases of fc5 

cp did work, it crashed when nautilus was used.
