Description manuel wolfshant 2010-05-18 06:24:55 EDT
Description of problem:
delete seems to fail when the folder's name contains spaces

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a directory containing a space in the name, e.g. the default "untitled folder".
2. Do a cut operation on a file and try to paste into the folder. You will get an error message "Not on the same filesystem" even though the files are in the same user directory.
3. Edit the directory name to remove the space and the cut and paste operation works. Performing the operation in bash shell using "mv" works correctly with a space in the name, so the problem appears to be in nautilus.
1.create a new directory , leaving the default name
2.paste inside a file
3. try to to delete the file, watch the "Not on the same filesystem" error message
Actual results:
delete fails

Expected results:
the file should be moved in scenario A, respectively deleted in scenario B

Is there a way to test without building my own rpm for gnome-vfs2 ?
Comment 3 Tomáš Bžatek 2010-05-18 07:47:00 EDT
The package should appear soon in RHEL 5.5.z channel. Since it contains an updated patch, you need to rebuild the rpm.
