Bug Description

When choosing a single file in nautilus there is no problem changing its owner or group.
But when multiple files are chosen, the combobox for doing that is replaced par a simple text and one cannot change the owner nor the group of these multiple files.
(there is no replacement for chown myuser:mygroup *)

I can confirm that this issue still occurs with Nautilus 2.21.6 in Hardy Alpha.
