Bug Description

Binary package hint: gvfs

found in Ubuntu 8.10 (with all the latest updates)
can't be tested in 9.04 due to another bug which prevents access altogether
camera used is a Canon EOS 10D running in 'Normal' communication (not PTP)

bug resides somewhere between nautilus and libgphoto2:
when trying to delete files or folders off an attached camera, and error is returned by nautilus saying the the operation is "Not Supported"
libgphoto2 supports the deletion of file and folders off of cameras, including the canon EOS 10D

the program gThumb is able to delete files off of the very same camera by calling "gp_camera_file_delete" directly through libgphoto2 on the same installation
the use of "gp_camera_file_delete" in gThumb can be found in the source code (2.10.0 from sourceforge) in '/src/dlg-photo-importer.c' on line 1267

problem seems to be in process gvfsd-gphoto2 - it's cpu % increases when trying to delete files, and it only appears when the camera is plugged in

to reproduce bug, simply plug a Canon EOS 10D camera into a USB port. The camera used was running firmware v2.01 and "communication" was set to "normal" (instead of PTP)

Any there are any questions, send me a message
