Bug Description

Binary package hint: gvfs

Firstly, apologies if this is a duplicate of another bug.

This happens fairly frequently when I copy files from an XP or Linux box to my notebook via Nautilus. Prior to copying I mounted an SMB share via Places -> Connect to Server -> Windows Share. After a while the copy process crashes, Nautilus eats 100% CPU and I have to restart samba and try again.

Please let me know if you need any more info.

How to reproduce :
 - Mount the network share in Nautilus as usual
 - On a WiFi network, scan for a big music collection in Rhythmbox which is located on the network share
 - After a while gvfs will not handle the workload and will crash with this error message.
gvfsd-smb crashed with SIGSEGV in g_main_context_dispatch()

The client is an up-to-date 64bit Maverick Meerkat computer
The network share is on a Synology NAS DS-107

Any instruction on how to produce a backtrace on gvfs-smb would be greatly appreciated in order to give a more detailed bug report.

Just adding that I also frequently have these crashes with a current Lucid and a CIFS network share (a stock Linksys-Cisco NAS)
