Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 214101
gnome-mount may leave a "weird" icon in a "Computer" window
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:31:04 EST
Description of problem:
After a USB memory stick was mounted and unmounted then in "Computer"
window there is a corresponding icon with "SanDisk Cruzer Mini"
legend (on one line). So far so good. Now, unpluging this device from
a socket removes that icon, as expected, but it _may_ cause an appearance,
in another place in this window, of a "generic" icon with the legend
which is somewhat, ahem, unexpected.
Replugging that stick makes this icon to vanish, and what you normally
expect shows up, and repating the above may cause this "%20Cruzer" to
reappear again, or may not. Some race somewhere?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I do not think that this is more than a minor annoyance, and I have
no idea how to even increase chances of reproducing that or if this
is really a gnome-mount which is responsible. Mentioned it on an
outward chance that this may have some relationship to bug 214097.
It should be noted too that these "weird icon appearances" seem to come
in runs (i.e. once it showed up then there are pretty good chances that
it will show up again the next time).
I think this is related to some race in the gnome-vfs2 code that speaks to hal.
Reassigning to gnome-vfs2 for now.
This still shows up from time to time like described in the original
report. Only now "%20Mini drive" changed into "%20Mini.drive". Weird.
I see this too. Pressing Ctrl+R sometimes fixes it. Which leads me to believe
that Nautilus is the culprit; not gnome-vfs.
I did not see that behaviour for a while. OTOH I do not have
a configuruation on which this was observed anymore. Hence
I really cannot tell if this was "fixed" in some sense.
A churn in this area is pretty substantial.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '9'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 9 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-07-10. Fedora 9 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
