Description of problem:
nautilus crashes or terminates when a folder or directory or file is removed
behind its back

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Direct nautilus to the directory /tmp/a/b
2. In a terminal window, recursively delete the directory /tmp/a

And next, either 3a or 3b will occur. I haven't been able to determine what
causes one to happen in preference to the other.

3a. When the nautilus window is refreshed, an error message is displayed stating
that the directory c is missing and nautilus dies
3b. When the nautilus window is refreshed, nautilus dies without warning.

Actual Results:  nautilus either crashes or terminates -- not sure whether there
is a difference in this case.

Expected Results:  Nautilus may optionally display an error message and change
its current directory to "/tmp". It should not terminate

Additional info:

A similar bug also occurs when nautilus is used to view a file (eg plain text)
and the text file is deleted. If a refresh is forced upon nautilus, the program

I'd expect this to be fixed in Rawhide.
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2002-08-28 15:30:54 EDT
Reproduced 3b with nautilus-2.0.5-4
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-16 09:44:16 EST
I can't reproduce this with the latest nautilus in rawhide. If i delete a
textfile that is displayed the window is removed. If i rm -rf /tmp/a while
showing /tmp/a/b nothing happens, but when i refresh the directory i get a
warning that it couldn't be opened, "maybe it was removed", then the window
disappears. If i'm in /tmp/a when it is removed the window just disappears.
