Bug Description

Binary package hint: file-roller

If you double-click an encrypted 7-Zip archive, file-roller asks you for the password and opens the archive.

The archive open, you can open the files, you can add more files or even whole folders. You can even copy-paste folders from the archive to elsewhere inside the same archive.

However the following operations lead to unexpected behavior:

- delete file/folder
prompts again for the password, then opens another file-roller window, which promps for the password on further time, and no change in the archive

- cut-paste inside the archive
prompts the password in loop, until you click cancel

- rename file/folder
"An error occurred while adding files to the archive."

As a user (not a developer) I can confirm that this bug still exists in version Archive Manager - at least on 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04, though I don't understand why the priority is "low." I am working on a textbook for Ubuntu secure workflow and will hope for a pushed-out fix within 3 to 6 months so I don't have to refer readers to a third-party application to handle encrypted 7-Zip files. Thanks for providing the fix and please let me know how I can monitor its availability to the rest of the world.
