Bug Description

Nautilus saves file under wrong name

During a rename process, if you copy a file into a directory where a file name is still under renaming, the newly copied file gets the name of the renamed file and the to-be renamed file stays the same

How to verify:

in a directory with one file test.txt
rename test.txt to test2.txt but DO not confirm (by clicking somewhere else or hit Enter)

copy file something.txt into this directory (from a separate window or from a browser)

you see 2 files in the directory

test2.txt (which is something.txt you copied into the directory)

It should be

test2.txt (which was test.txt originally)

Not critical if you know it but serious if you want to find the files later

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported in a currently supported version of Ubuntu? Please let us know if you do and in which version otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
