Description Miroslav Hradílek 2012-09-07 08:33:29 EDT
Description of problem:

When adding directory as a storage pool, virtual-manager adds only directories selected not the ones entered. Workaround is to enter parent directory and select the one that should be the storage or enter the path manually. Of course, if the user notices open dialog failed. The described way of choosing directories works in other applications and used to work in former versions of virtual-manager.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
virt-manager-0.9.4-1.fc17.noarch run on x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkdir ~/_storage
2. Edit-->Connection Details and click [+] AKA "Add Pool"
3. Chose Name: testpool, Type dir: Filesystem Directory and click [Forward]
4. Click [Browse], navigate to ~/_storage and click [Open]
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
First I thought it was the same issue as described in BZ#746014 but found out it was not related to the _ character.

Thanks for the report Miroslav. 

Strange, gtk started disliking something we've done for years, though our code was crappy anyways. Fixed upstream:
