on Oneiric i386 updated, i have to kill the nautilus process because it was using 2.3 Gio of ram (silently growing)

Harry (harry33) wrote :

I notice Nautilus (also with gksu nautilus) crashes immediately if, when renaming a file, I press an arrow key.
But if I rename a file only by typing the new file name, it works OK.

reassigning to glib, according to upstream the issue is coming from there, please do not forward it upstream for now since a new package is going to be uploaded to test if the issue is still reproducible with that newer version , thanks all!.

affects: nautilus (Ubuntu Oneiric) → glib2.0 (Ubuntu Oneiric)

Happens when pressing any arrow key, delete or backspace

For folks on i386, can you please test with today's oneiric? We got a new glib version 2.29.10. Thank you!

Hi pitti,

Yep, did update and the problem is gone.

Thanks for confirming. If someone still gets this, please yell here, but after two confirmations I'll close it. I also don't get the crashes any more.
