nautilus (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

But only when using the copy to... option on files from another partition, locally there is no issue.
The nauutilus window just goes gray & no other nautilus windows can be opened or accessed if already open.
The nautilus process is still running, no crash.

Test case here:
Open nautilus > Other location+ > browse to a file in another partition > r. click > copy to > pick a local folder. Copy is successful.
Repeat on another file, nautilus 'freezes', no copy happens, nautilus is unresponsive but not crashed. Only killing nautilus will bring back, trying to quit nautilus in terminal does not work, shows this -
$ nautilus -q

Thanks Doug, let's keep those bugs open though since we are likely to do the update next cycle and it's better if we have a list of issues already there
