Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 207224
viewing Properties of an mp3 file causes browser window to hang
Last modified: 2013-10-20 18:42:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Attempting to view the Properties of an mp3 file causes the file browser window
to hang and the desktop/icons to become unresponsive. Must kill nautilus for
behavior to return to normal.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@slacker ~]# rpm -q nautilus
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select an mp3 file.
2. Right click and select Properties from pull down menu, or Select File ->
Properites from tool bar menu.
Nautilus freezes up, menu stays with "Properties" highlighted, nothing else
happens and desktop icons become unresponsive
Pop up window with data about the mp3 file.
Properties of PDF, text, images files are displayed just fine. Also, mp3 files
that I am attempting to dispay properties of have been on my hard drive for a
long time and Nautilus didn't have problems with them in the past. I'd like to
say that this bug showed up within the last couple of weeks, but I can't
remember the exact day.
This is likely a problem with the totem property page.
Just thought I'd let you know that it isn't a problem for me anymore, so
whatever non-nautilus component that was the cause of the bug must've been updated.
It's OK to close this report.
