Emptying trash shows a "Preparing" dialog with a non-moving progress bar

Bug #198385 reported by John Leach on 2008-03-04

Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

When emptying the trash (I used the "Empty Deleted Items" button at the top of the file list in Nautilus) a new gvfs style dialog pops up with a progress bar at 0% saying "Preparing". It stays at 0% for the duration of the empty and then disappears when it's done.

I imagine it should say "Emptying Deleted Items" and the progress bar should either update, or not be displayed at all.

DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu hardy (development branch)"

I had the same issue on Intrepid. Couldn't stop the deleting process by clicking on X or stop icon. I pressed on the "Empty trash" again and that deleted everything from Trash. But the first process remained and left as tray icon. First process have ended after restarting nautilus.
