Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
file-roller (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Steps to reproduce:
- Open an archive with the file-roller gui
- Place the window over top of chromium
- Open a nautilus window
- Drag the contents of file-roller (to extract them) over to the nautilus window making sure that the dragged content passes over the chromium window.

Expected Results:
- Nothing should happen until I drop the contents onto the nautilus window at which point the content is extracted

Actual Results:
- An error message pops up: Destination folder "(null)" does not exist. Do you want to create it

This also happens when dragging onto another monitor (in a dual monitor setup).

@victor, I can't replicate that with my tri-monitor setup, so it must be a different bug (with same symptoms perhaps).

@richard, sorry, my mistake - I actually had a _small_ portion of chromium behind when I dragged it to nautilus on my second monitor.

Can the fix be back ported so I don't have to wait until October for it?

It probably could if somebody is interested to work on that, it's a small cosmetic issue though so not high in the team todolist, especially on a non LTS version
