Description Nikos Charonitakis 2008-02-08 22:52:23 UTC
Description of problem:
After some days of using my main user account, i have speed problems with
nautilus on opening and closing  folders. Even if a folder is completely empty
the same behaviour appears.
So, i started investigating the issue. I logged in another fresh account and
there is no such problem (initialy). Then i deleted all my files in my main home
folder and problem disappeared for a while. I started recovering my files from
backup (no hidden folders backup just plain files) and after a while slow
behaviour appeared again. Then i read .xession-errors file and i found that it
is full of lines like these:

(nautilus:21981): Gtk-WARNING **: Refusing to add non-unique action
to action group 'TemplatesGroup'

(nautilus:21981): Gtk-WARNING **: Refusing to add non-unique action
to action group 'TemplatesGroup'

(nautilus:21981): Gtk-WARNING **: Refusing to add non-unique action
to action group 'TemplatesGroup'
...Too much output, ignoring rest...

I thought that maybe is something related to localized folder names (from
xdg-user-dirs package) and maybe there is some base to my thought:
I logout of my account, changed language from Greek to English, changed folder
names (with  wizard) to English and nautilus is speedy again!
Then i revert the changes (go back to Greek enviroment) and nautilus is slow

Hmm, what files do you have inside the templates directory (the greek named one)?
Is things still slow in greek if you remove the files in that directory?

Comment 2 Nikos Charonitakis 2008-02-15 14:33:42 UTC
Alex you are right, i have two folders with gnome icon themes in there. After
removing them from templates directory, speed is ok again with greek folders
name in use.
Is this still a bug? Why with English folder names i did not have any problem?

Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2008-02-20 10:07:31 UTC
I don't think it was affected by the language as such, just what was in the
corresponding templates folder.

Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2008-02-20 10:25:56 UTC
I believe this checkin to 2.21.1 fixes this:

2007-12-12  Alexander Larsson  <alexl@redhat.com>

        * src/file-manager/fm-directory-view.c:
	Remove spew
	Avoid creating three copies of template menu actions

Reopen if you see this in >= 2.21.1 (which is in rawhide now)
