Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 479490
Nautilus's file operations progress dialog gets lots between virtual desktop switches
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:33:56 EST
Description of problem:
Starting a long file copy operation in Nautilus, hiding the progress box by clicking on its notification area icon, switching desktops, and clicking again renders the dialog invisible until Nautilus is restarted.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Begin long copy operation.
2. Click grey filing cabinet icon in notification area to hide progress dialog.
3. Switch to another virtual desktop.
4. Click grey filing cabinet icon to try and bring it back.
No dialog, for the current or future file operations.
I see this too on rawhide (F11). Sometimes, just switching desktops is enough to cause it.
Still present in nautilus-2.26.4-2.fc11.x86_64.
I haven't experienced this after upgrading to F12.
Not seen in nautilus-2.28.4-2.fc12.x86_64, closing.
