The error dialog I get when right-clicking on the desktop and selecting "Search for Files..."

Description of problem:
This seems to be broken.  That is, right-clicking on a folder and selecting "Search for Files..." doesn't result in a search at that location.  It brings up the "Search for Files" app alright--along with a dialog box saying it can't find the directory.  The path given in the dialog box suggests that the actual path has been mangled.

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

How reproducible:
Comment 1 Didier G 2009-01-06 20:33:49 EST
I have exactly the same problem with same dialog error.
Comment 2 Didier G 2009-01-08 07:40:18 EST
I rebuilt a RPM for Fedora 10 from nautilus-search-tool-0.2.2-8.fc11.src.rpm found on Koji but problem still exists with this version.

Search tool cannot stat existing directory.

I have the same issue, though searching works when I dismiss this error.
see screenshot attached.

This *might* have been fixed in latest 0.3.0 upstream release.  From their Changelog:

2009-04-12  Andrea Zagli <azagli@libero.it>

	* added turkish translation (thanks to Yavuz Selim)
	* fixes to work with nautilus >= 2.22 (thanks to nautilus-open-terminal
	* fixes to work with gnome-utils => 2.22
	* version 0.3.0
Comment 6 Chess Griffin 2009-07-15 12:48:39 EDT
I am working on an updated 0.3.0 spec & SRPM to see if this fixes things.
Comment 7 Chess Griffin 2009-07-15 20:48:02 EDT
I updated the spec and SRPM to version 0.3.0 and it seems to work fine on my Fedora 11 box.  Rpmlint -vi on the spec, SRPM, and RPM are clean, no warnings or errors.  I also cleaned up the spec and removed some of the patches that were no longer needed.  It builds fine in Koji for dist-f11[1] and dist-f12[2].

I find n-s-t-0.3.0-1.fc11 crashes nautilus when I try to use it.
Comment 9 Paul W. Frields 2009-07-18 14:28:04 EDT
Can you try this package instead?  (If you download it manually, you may need to 'yum remove nautilus-search-tool' before you install the new one.  If you simply click on the package and let PackageKit handle it, everything will work fine.)  It works for me without crashing:

Comment 10 James 2009-07-18 14:46:43 EDT
Now it works, thanks.
