Bug Description

When copying a file from my server which hosts a samba network share, Pantheon files crashes. I am simply dragging and dropping the file in question from within the file browser window to a shortcut on the left nav of the Pantheon files window. Some relevant log entries below:

Nov 19 21:29:55 JS-E430 kernel: [31058.774057] pantheon-files[8844]: segfault at 7972746e45 ip 00007f038b876e0a sp 00007fffb54780b0 error 4 in[7f038b816000+f2000]

Also, while on topic, it'd be nice to not have to edit the nautilus.desktop file in /usr/share/applications with it's OnlyShowIn=GNOME;Unity; entry that I had to comment out to make it visible. It gave me quite a run-around as I tried to get a workable file manager into elementary OS since Pantheon files wasn't able to handle this task.

I pulled in Pantheon-Files from the daily PPA. That too crashed. At this point, literally 100% of the time I work with network shares (which is a substantial portion of my job) Pantheon-Files will crash. I wish I was kidding, but yes, 100% of the time it's crashing.

I couldn't find any hidden files/folders relating to Pantheon-Files in my home directory, so I just removed all of them and started over. Even still, Pantheon-Files crashes. It's literally unusable.

I ran pantheon-files from terminal and tried to open a picture on a Samba share. Same thing happened. Crash.

Here's the terminal output from that session:

At this point, only one of my systems is experiencing this issue. I'm finding that I cannot even open pictures from over a Samba network share without it crashing. It literally crashes 100% of the time on this unit when clicking to open an image file.

I removed Pantheon Files, purged it, and removed ~/.config/marlin in an effort to 'reset' it, then reinstalled Pantheon Files. Even then, same difference.

The latest Pantheon Files currently in the daily PPA made no difference either.

Here's a video depicting the consistent crashes I see. I have duplicated this exact behavior in two different environments using two different Samba file servers.

Are there any other locations where Pantheon Files configs might be stored so I can remove them in an effort to fully reset Pantheon Files? I just can't seem to find a connection as to why it happens on this system but not any others, despite the fact they were all installed from the same ISO/flash drive right around the same time.

I'm still seeing this issue. Running a fully updated version of elementary os as of this posting.

Renaming files also causes it to crash, it's pretty much unusable on SAMBA shares.
