Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-utils

1 - I invoked Disk Usage Analyzer and selected Analyzer, Scan Remote Folder. I set the Service Type to SSH and supplied the necessary information to scan a folder on my Ubuntu 10.04 server. The folder is scanned as expected. However, if I click on the top of the Size column in the results the sub-folders are not sorted correctly by size. They seem to be displayed randomly.

2 - I then scanned a folder on the PC which which running Disk Usage Analyzer. The sub-folders are correctly sorted by size.

3 - I again selected Analyzer, Scan Remote Folder. I set the Service Type to SSH and supplied the necessary information to scan the same folder as in step 2 above (on the PC which is running the Disk Usage Analyzer). In this case the sort by sub-folder size does not work. Same symptoms as when I scanned a remote server. The sub-folder sizes seem to be listed randomly.
