Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 492854
Nautilus freezes when browsing a folder
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:40:09 EST
Description of problem:
We have Fedora 10 desktops running in our school lab. Two or three (out of 500) of our students are having problems when they log into any computer in the lab; nautilus starts up fine, but when they double-click on their home folder, it freezes.
Both students are in class 12, and that class has been working on SVG images using inkscape. Nautilus is in browser mode.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log in as specified user
2. Open home folder
Nautilus file browser freezes
Able to browse folders
$ rpm -qa | grep nautilus
After nautilus --quit has been run:
Initializing nautilus-open-terminal extension
Initializing nautilus-sound-converter extension
Initializing nautilus-image-converter extension
Initializing nautilus-search-tool extension

strace of nautilus that freezes
This is an strace of nautilus after running nautilus --quit, then strace -o strace.dump nautilus. The last two/three lines only occur after I press Control-C.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '10'.
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 10'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 10 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 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
