Ctrl+C can not be used to copy filename in "Save Screenshot"

Bug #657919 reported by Tor Klingberg

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-utils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

What I do:
1. Press PrtSc. The "Save Screenshot" dialog pops up.
2. Select the whole Name field.
3. Press Ctrl+C to copy the filename

What happens:
* The "Copy to Clipboard" button gets clicked, and the screenshot itself is copied to the clipboard.

What should happen:
* The selected text in the Name input box is copied to clipboard, just like any other text box.

Confirmed. Bug is related to ctrl+c and nautilus I imagine.

*Click the any-file
*Press F2 to edit the name, automaticly "filename" will be marked, as it should and have always been through time.
*Press ctr+c and imagine that the marked text is copied to clip board
*open a text document, or just go any place where we can input text
*press ctrl+v and watch the whole directory path of the above file to be pasted, instead of only the filename that was marked.

As a note I may mention that xselect is not affected by this bug.
