Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 with latest updates as of 03/25/08

In ubuntu feisty/gutsy, I was able to create a bookmark to an sshfs mount and drag files to it on the fly without having to mount the sshfs manually. Now, when I drag a file from say the Desktop to an sshfs bookmark, it complains with:

Error while copying to "images on server".
There was an error getting information about the destination.
The specified location is not mounted

I have to then click on the bookmark to mount it in order to copy files to it. Mounting this way also puts a shortcut to the mount on my desktop. This manual procedure and added shortcut were not needed before and I feel are pointless.

I have the same issue on a upgrade (gutsy to hardy) machine with latest updates as of todays date.

This is also the case with smb bookmarks

Any chance of this being fixed or have a patch released before Hardy is released?

not likely going to changed before hardy no, there is lot to do and this one is only a small annoyance, could be considered for hardy-updates once a fix is available though

It's been 3 months since this was reported. Has anyone looked at it? Might it be related to bug #207072?
