nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I am doing this series of actions in Nautilus:
1) Have 2 windows open, a source and a destination.
2) I do F2 on a file in the destination directory and then hit Ctrl+C to copy the name.
3) Move to the source window and F2 on the file I want to rename.
4) Use Ctrl+V, then slightly modify the name. Press enter.
5) Ctrl+X on the source item.

- It will not cut (it does not gray) and if I Ctrl+V in the destination, the file does not paste.

If I do "nautilus -q" to restart Nautilus, it will start working.
