Description Dm3 K 2012-11-18 15:47:27 EST
Description of problem:
pcmanfm won't open files with a hash (#) in their name. For example, a filename in my ~/ named 'file#name.mp4' is parsed as '~/file" and thus fail to open. Using the terminal to open the file works. For example gnome-mplayer will return "Failed to open /home/user/file."

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : pcmanfm
Arch        : i686
Version     : 1.0.1
Release     : 1.fc17

Name        : libfm
Arch        : i686
Version     : 1.0.1
Release     : 1.fc17

Name        : xdg-utils
Arch        : noarch
Version     : 1.1.0
Release     : 0.14.20120809git.fc17

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open pcmanfm
2. rename a file to include a #
3. try to open it by double clicking
Actual results:
The file won't open and most apps will report that they tried to open file so-and-so, which is parsed until before the hash.

Expected results:
file to open as if it was called from cli

Additional info:
I do think this used to work before the last update.

Please try 1.1.0 currently in testing (and will be pushed into stable soon)

Yes, that fixes it for me. Should I mark this as CLOSED?
