Description of problem:
Nautilus crashes when writing to a Windows share. No warning message, no error message, just goes away, then restarts after a short while. It seems that the files get written correctly though.

Maybe this should be assigned to a different component, since there is no way to find out why it's crashing.

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

How reproducible:
Most of the times, but not always (same share)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a Windows share in Nautilus
2. Write files
Actual results:
Nautilus crashes, X lags for some 10 seconds, mayhem.
Files get written

Expected results:
Files get written, nothing crashes, everybody's happy

Thank you for the bug report. Without a stack trace from the crash it is
impossible to determine what caused the crash. Please see
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/StackTraces for more information about
getting a useful stack trace.

There seems to be no core dump.

Also, I noticed that some files don't get written to the remote share after all and it tends to happen on move.

I tried to obtain a nautilus log but there's nothing unusal there - just "files changed" messages.

and this:
0x25e94d0 2009/02/26 14:30:40.6456 (GLog): Unable to add monitor: Not supported

If you run nautilus from a console and then reproduce the bug, do you get any interesting information at the console?

I doubt that's related to the crash (I'm guessing you'd probably see those messages if you just ran Nautilus at a console and did something else). Hmm, sorry, not sure about this one :\

In this case those 2 messages pop up and then nautilus crashes instantly. Might be related or not I guess.

Any other methods to debug?

If found out that this is caused by an external addon to Nautilus and most likely is not a problem with Nautilus.
