Bug Description

I'm copying a large amount of data from my digital camera (which mounts with gphoto2). With a copy in progress, I alt-tab away to google chrome and then alt-tab back to nautilus. The copy dialog is gone and the menu option on the nautilus icon to "Show copy dialog" does nothing. The copy progress is shown on the icon.

In fact Alt-tabbing to nautilus seems to fail while it's in this mode entirely. The focus stays on chrome the whole time. The only way I can get to nautilus is to move chrome out of the way and manually click on the nautilus windows.
