Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52383
nautilus spins CPU when viewing remote hosts.

I've observed strange behavior both on the client and server when using
Nautilus to view and manage files on a remote host. With ftp, nautilus
will sometimes just hang and start spinning the CPU -- I can click the Stop
button and get the interface back, but with a thread pegging the CPU
everything is slower.
On smb:, nautilus will on occasion create exceptional numbers of
connections to the remote host. I've only seen this once, but it seems
related to the stop button behavior.
Huh? The smb module should only *ever* user one connection per smb server and
share. Do you know more exactly what you did to get this?
Anyway, if you really like general Nautilus bugs fixed you should report them
upstream. That is currently bugzilla.eazel.com and will move to
bugzilla.gnome.org soonish. If it is in the redhat tracker we might fix it if is
simple and we have nothing else to do, but fat chance of that... :)
I believe the smb issue is fixed in gnome-vfs-extras-0.2.0-1.
Lots of bugs along these lines have been fixed, assuming one of them was the
one you were seeing. Hard to know, of course.
