Description of problem:
If you open an ftp site with nautilus using a username:password combination (ex.
ftp://etwilson:password@hostname.domain) it will open up in your home directory.
 This is expected behavior.  If you then try to browse to a sub-directory by
clicking on one of the folder icons, you get something like this error message:

Couldn't find "ftp://etwilson:password@hostname.domain/subdir". Please check the
spelling and try again.

If you add "/home/username" to the end of the url and click enter, nautilus will
show you your home directory just as above but in this case the folders are
functional and you do not get errors.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Nautilus.
2.Type in an ftp url of a machine that you have an account on, using the 
username:password@hostname.domain format.
3.Wait for the directory listing to be shown.
4.Click on any folder.


Actual Results:  you get the error message:

Couldn't find "ftp://etwilson:password@hostname.domain/subdir". Please check the
spelling and try again.

Expected Results:  You should be able to browse to subdirectories from your home
directory.  Nautilus should just add the "/home/username" suffix to the url
automatically when you have entered a username and password.

This is a gnome-vfs bug really.
I know something related to this was fixed upstream. Need to check that.
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2003-08-06 05:57:14 EDT
This should be fixed from 2.2.4 which is in rawhide.
Comment 3 John Thacker 2006-04-22 16:44:35 EDT
Can confirm the fix mentioned above.  Has been fixed for a long time.  Closing.
