brasero "Never Add Such File" doesn't do anything
Last modified: 2015-03-03 18:05:37 EST
Description of problem:
If you try to add a directory hierarchy of excessive depth to a brasero data project, it asks, "Do you really want to add "[filename]" to the selection? The children of this directory will have 7 parent directories. Brasero can create an image of such a file hierarchy and burn it but the disc may not be readable on all operating systems. Note: Such a file hierarchy is known to work on Linux." The choice is given between two buttons: "Never Add Such File" and "Always Add Such File". If you choose "Never", it apparently ignores your answer and merrily adds the file to the project.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. for i in `seq 10`; do mkdir foo; cd foo; done
2. start brasero
3. start a new data project
4. add the root-most foo directory to the project
5. click the "Never" button
It blithely adds the directory to the project
Nothing, effectively the same as a "Cancel", but with persistence (a different bug).
This works fine for me in brasero-3.6.1, clicking the "Never Add Such File" would add only five levels with the last one having empty contents.
Can you confirm this is fixed in the latest version and close?
OK, I'm seeing the same behavior, and it seems reasonable. I'm not sure whether it worked differently in the version I was testing; I may not have realized precisely what it was doing. Closing NOTABUG.
