Description The Source 2006-09-15 04:46:49 UTC
Description of problem:
When I visit /mnt/c/Documents and Settings/The Source/My Documents using
launcher on desktop and then press up button, nautilus tries to enter
/mnt/c/Documents and Settings/The Source directory but closes immediatly. I
tried to strace the problem but when I launch nautilus with strace like this:
strace -o naut.log nautilus "/mnt/c/Documents and Settings/The Source/My
Documents" and then press up button all works properly. I even tried launcher
with strace command but no good - with strace all is fine. I don't know what's
going on.

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

How reproducible:
always when started with desktop launcher (directory type) in /mnt/c/Documents
and Settings/The Source/My Documents

The launcher is link type, not directory, sorry

Comment 2 The Source 2006-09-15 04:51:07 UTC
This happens only if up button is pressed. If I modify /mnt/c/Documents and
Settings/The Source/My Documents to /mnt/c/Documents and Settings/The Source in
address string then all is fine

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-15 09:15:05 UTC
Very strange. Are you sure it actually crashes? The nautilus in FC5 does close
the window sometimes when you try to load a non-existing directory (FC6 doesn't
do this). Do you get a bug-buddy crash warning? Does the desktop and other
nautilus window also die?

What if you go to "The Source" and press reload?

Comment 4 The Source 2006-09-15 11:32:38 UTC
Looks like it is not crash but window close as you say. But of cource I do not
open non-existing directory. If I go to The Source and press reload all is fine.
Bug happens only if I access My Documents from link type launcher (the one that
has URL parameter instead of command) on desktop and then press up button.

Comment 5 The Source 2006-09-15 11:45:24 UTC
Man, I like this system. :)
I restarted my PC and nautilus stoped closing window. Now it dislays everything
properly. I'm confused. What could happen&

Comment 6 The Source 2006-09-15 12:02:54 UTC
Spent about 15 minutes in system and bug returned

Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-18 07:58:01 UTC
