Old file names shown momentarily when renaming a file in Nautilus

Bug #113341 reported by agro1986 on 2007-05-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
nautilus (Ubuntu)
Ubuntu Desktop Bugs

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Using 7.04 final.

1) Open nautilus, go to a location where there is a file you can rename
2) Suppose the old file name is NEW
3) Rename it into NEWER by selecting it, pressing F2, typing NEWER, and then pressing enter
4) For a flash, the old name NEW will be displayed before changing to NEWER

Ideally, after we press enter we don't need to see the old file name again.

I can confirm this behavior. However, I have an additional concern. I have problems to edit a new filename in the rename mode: I can start writing, but when I use space, the rename process stops for some seconds and I have to wait until I can continue to write the filename, or it won's accept the enter command immediately once I have finished writing. So, I have no clue what could cause this behavior.

It does still happen, though the speed at which the update happens seems to be dependent on some other factor.

The bug is old and Ubuntu changed quite a lot since, there has also been no activity here nor similar reports. Closing since we believe the issue as described is deprecated but feel free to file a new report if you still have problems in recent Ubuntu versions.
